STATISTICAL MODELING OF THERMAL-RADIATION TRANSFER IN NATURAL-CONVECTION TURBULENT DIFFUSION FLAMES. 3. FLAME ABOVE THE SURFACE OF LIQUID FUELA. Yu. Snegirev UDC 536.46:614.841.41 Results of numerical modeling of natural-convection turbulent diffusion flames above the surface of liquid fuel have been presented. The rate of burning (evaporation) of the fuel was determined as a function of the incident radiation heat flux, which in turn depended on the amount of fuel entering the flame zone. In so doing, feedback in which thermal radiation is of primary importance was closed. Radiation transfer was modeled by the statistical method.
