A series of comprehensive large eddy simulations of non-premixed turbulent hydrocarbon flames of different sizes in a typical fire scenario have been carried out to compute the flame radiative heat transfer. In the simulation, considerations include the modelling of sub-grid turbulence, turbulent combustion, soot formation, thermal radiation and interactive heat transfer inside solid walls, etc. The instantaneous thermal radiation was calculated using the discrete transfer method with the radiation property evaluated by both an approximated fast narrow band model and an integral model. Simulation was validated against experimental data. Flame radiation heat transfer was compared for flames of different sizes. The effect of thermal radiation property evaluation model on calculation of radiation and the role of thermal radiation in total heat transfer are analyzed.
