Volatility and Flammability of Methanol/Gasoline Blends 892062

Computational procedures are described for combining a simple multicomponent fuel volatility model with flammability data to facilitate the analyses of a wide variety of practical situations involving methanol/ gasoline blends. These include fire hazards, fuel droplet or film evaporation, ignition, combustion and engine cold starting. In addition to outlining the computational procedures, several examples are given to illustrate possible applications. In particular, gasoline and M85 are compared as to their respective flashpoints, flammability of fuel tank headspace vapours, and fuel droplet evaporation under cold ambient conditions.
