The Boilover phenomenon can be characterized as the sudden ejection of certain hydrocarbon caused by prolonged burning during a storage tank fire. The boilover happens due to the vaporization of water that resides at the base of a storage tank which leads to the sudden release of hot fuel from the tank, massive fireballs and fire enlargement and also extensive ground fire. Boilover phenomena have getting various considerations all through the commercial ventures. As mishaps happen, individuals had been broadly researching all the more on this event. In view of past scientist, boil over peril mishap ordinarily happen for crude oil or fuel oil. Boilover is an exceptionally hazardous inadvertent phenomenon, which can prompt heavy wounds particularly to crisis responders. The boilover can happen a few hours after the fuel in a storage tank burst into flames. The boilover event is an unpredictable parameter when dealing with the emergency responding operations. In this proposal project paper, the author proposed a study on the prediction of the boilover onset time using energy balance approach. The method that was used for this experiment is basically about a simple combustion using a small scale fire to study the characteristics of the boilover of fuel and develop an energy balance equation to predict the boilover onset time. Throughout this paper, the author explained on the problem statement of the study, objective and the scope of study. Next, literature review from past research paper related to boilover was summarized followed by some elaborations on the methodology of the experiment. Next, author would enclose the results and propose the recommendations for the study and finally conclude the study‟s findings with references.
