Default fireFoam : liquid fuel pool fire

I am trying to simulate liquid pool fire in fireFoam to predict fuel mass loss rate with heat feedback. What is implemented in fireFoam is to specify fuel mass flux at inlet, but the fuel mass flow will change as the heat feedback(radiation+convection) to the fuel surface will change its temperature and cause it to vaporize and hence fuel mass flow will change. Therefore mass loss rate and heat feedback are coupled together.

Is there any work been done to calculate the heat feedback to the liquid surface or to couple heat feedback with fuel mass vaporization rate.
