The validity of correlations describing the effect of wind on the flame of a large pool fire (flame tilt and flame drag) has been investigated on the basis of observations made at two tests and one storage tank fire. It is concluded that the flame drag does not depend on the density of the vapour evaporating from the burning pool. The flame drag correlation derived from large LNG pool fires by Moorhouse predicts the measured flame drag values.
