In large scale fires, radiation feedback from the flame
to the fuel surface can be an important factor
determining the rate of fuel volatilization and the rate
of flame spread. The radiant flux can be significantly
attenuated by core gases that have absorption features
in the infrared. Computer simulations that model flame
spread require gas absorption data to accurately predict
the radiation feedback.
