In analytical modeling of small laboratory-scale flames, the influence of radiative heat loss is often neglected. This is based on the fact that small nonluminous flames can radiate only small amounts of energy even though radiant transfer dominates in large scale fires (1). In the present study, it is shown that there arises circumstances where radiant energy loss cannot be properly neglected even for small scale premixed flames. This is especially true for premixed flames where the entire downstream region is composed of hot products of combustion which radiate.
