This document reports on full-scale spill & fire experiments that were conducted with gasoline & kerosene on vinyl, wood parquet, & carpet covered plywood floors using various quantities of fuel. Spill areas were measured, & for nonporous floors the results were compared to analytical predictions. Burn pattern areas are correlated with the spill areas, resulting in a method for predicting the quantity of spilled fuel required to form a burn pattern of a given size. These experiments help give fire investigators the ability to predict the quantity of liquid fuel necessary to create a burn pattern of a given size. Illustrations.Putorti, Anthony D., Jr. is the author of 'Flammable and Combustible Liquid Spill/Burn Patterns' with ISBN 9780756722104 and ISBN 0756722101.
