The report summarizes the technical literature on the use of industrial flares and reviews available emission estimates. Technical critiques of past flare efficiency studies are provided. Mathematical models of flame behavior are explored and recommendations for flare flame models are made. The parameters affecting flare efficiency are evaluated, and a detailed experimental test plan is developed. The design of a flare test facility is provided, including details on the flare tips, fuel and steam supplies, flow control and measurement, emissions sampling and analysis, and data acquisition and processing.
