Paper Abstract

This paper presents a comparison between measurements of the spectral radiant intensity of Magnesium/Teflon®/Viton® (MTV) flares and theoretical estimation using available mathematical models in the range of 0.6 μm up to 11.5 μm. It is used an indigenous system capable of hold the flare pellets in the same position during the burning time and reproduce the airflow after an actual air launching at different velocities. Two mathematical models are studied and adapted to predict MVT flare radiant intensity and average emissivity from visible to long wavelength infrared. The results indicate that the adapted models can be use to estimate the MTV flare parameters in different situations with good accuracy.
