Abstract
Fires caused by hydrocarbon compounds can be an important hazard for the overall safety of chemical and process industries. Particularly, pool fires are the most frequent fire scenarios in such facilities [1] and can affect other equipment of the plant with severe results due to the domino effect [2]. Some of the harmful effects that hydrocarbon pool fires may entail have been predicted by means of semi-empirical methods during the last decades. However, these can only be employed in simple scen...
