a. Estimate the radiant energy intensity (BTU/hr/ft2) during an episode when 1-propanol (C3H8O) is being flared at a rate of 200,000 lb/hr at a point of 50 feet horizontally from the base of a flare that is 180 feet tall. The flare has a diameter of 2 feet.
b. Estimate the percentage of people exposed to this radiant energy level for 60 seconds that will suffer second degree burns.
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it is about 1-propanol being flared near a flare with a diameter of 2 feet. The estimated radiant energy intensity of 1-propanol and the estimated percentage of people suffering second degree burns is calculated in the solution.
