"Numerical modeling of limiting oxyg..." refers background or result in this paper
...At the time of development of the test, preliminary studies by Fenimore and Martin  showed that Limiting Oxygen Index would be fairly constant within the velocity range 3–12 cm/s, a conclusion which was later questioned by several investigators [3–5]....
...3) In the suggested range of feeding velocities between 3 cm/s and 12 cm/s, the computed LOI for all practical purposes can be taken to be independent of the velocity in support of the claim by the designers of the test ....

...Figure 2: A comparison of prediction of flame spread rate from the 3D numerical model with the experiments of Olson  over a wide range of Oxygen percentage (21 to 100)....
...While the higher sensitivity of the microgravity flame and non-monotonic flame spread rate trend with velocity have been demonstrated and explained previously by both experiments [10, 15] and numerical simulations [9, 13], it is interesting to note that the maximum Vf occurs for narrow width fuel strips at higher inflow velocities....
...Olson carried out experiments on opposed flow flame spread over thin cellulosic fuel strips of half thickness 3.8 × 10–3 cm and width 3 cm in both normal gravity (1ge) and 5s drop tower microgravity (0ge) environments....
...Before addressing the LOI device, theprediction capability of the model was assessed by simulating the experiments of Olson ....
