### Abstract:

*
The effect of the fire size on radiative heat loss
fraction and combustion efficiency was examined by an
analysis of scale for pool flames with varying diameter
(D). Correlations between D and radiative heat loss
fraction or combustion efficiency were obtained. For
0.1m < diameter < 1m, radiative heat loss fraction and
combustion efficiency are relatively constant and
independent of D. For larger pool diameters, radiative
heat loss fraction decreases with increasing D.
