However, the mass burning rate of TEA (0.029 kg/[m.sup.2]-s) is much slower than short chain hydrocarbon fuels such as hexane (0.077 kg/[m.sup.2]-s) and isopentane (0.103 kg/[m.sup.2]-s) [11].
In the above, [m.sub.a] and [[LAMBDA].sub.0] are, respectively, the mass burning rate and the mass burning rate eigenvalue in the adiabatic condition.
The specific mass burning rate (rate of mass loss per unit area) was calculated from the surface regression rate and the density of the oil.
