On the length of flames under ceilings

Thomas, Philip and Karlsson, Björn (1990) In LUTVDG/TVBB--3059--SE 3059.
Abstract
Two sets of experimental data on flame length under flat ceilings from a burner in a lower corner of a room have been correlated by conventional dimensionless variables. The correlations are shown to have considerable similarity to those of temperature distributions under ceilings caused by a heat source below. Matching is effected by a choice of temperature rise of approximately 180ºC.
