# Heat released during in-situ combustion given by Burger & Sahuquet

## Input(s)

m: Molar Ratio of \(\mathrm{H} / \mathrm{C}\) (fraction)

x: Ratio of Carbon Monoxide to Carbon Emissions (fraction)

## Output(s)

\(d h_{a}\): Heat Liberated (BTU/scf)

## Formula(s)

\[
\mathrm{dh}_{\mathrm{a}}=\frac{94-67.9 * \mathrm{~m}+31.2 * \mathrm{x}}{1-0.5 * \mathrm{~m}+0.25 * \mathrm{x}}
\]
