We made an attempt to measure the flame temperature of
four different diameter hexane-pool-fires using IR
technique. Emissivities for these four flames were
estimated based on measurements of transmitted energy
from a blackbody radiant source. The average flame
temperature half way to the flame tip was 700-800 deg C,
which was in good agreement with
thermocouple-temperature measurements by others for a 3
m diameter hexane pool fire.
