Operational Flammability Limits of Commercial Fuels – A Review
Dept. Chair, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, King Faisal University, KSA
This manuscript considers the operational flammability limits of commercial fuels used in the automotive and in the aviation industry. Commonly employed fuels are considered in this study. Understanding the flammability limits is an important aspect while choosing right fuel for a given application. An explosion of stored fuel or combustion system can be catastrophic and can create a serious impact to the society. Therefore, researchers while developing fuels and combustion systems must give considerable attention. This manuscript reviews the effect of vapour pressure and temperature on flammability of fuels and reviews the auto ignition and flash point temperature of fuels commonly seen in the automotive and in the aviation industry.
