...Also, it should be noted that the standard testing procedure requires fuel specimen to be placed in between metallic strips, however it was shown in [26] that in case the fuel is allowed to burn along the edges the LOI values can get affected drastically and even reverse the trend between 0ge and 1ge reported here....

...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....
