Walker (1973; Phil. Trans. R. Soc. Lond., 274, 107) argued that, for a limited set of compositions and flow types, effusion rate (E) was the principal influence on flow length, sparking a series of studies into the volume and cooling limits on flow extension. We here review these works, as well as the role of heat loss in controlling flow length. We also explore the applicability of Walker's idea to a larger compositional and morphological range. Heat loss plays a fundamental role in determining flow core cooling rates, thereby influencing cooling-limited flow length. Field...
