Alcohol stove intake and exhaust calculator.

I see reference to an intake and exhaust calculator relating to wood fires. Is there such an animal for alcohol stoves.

The only intake and exhaust for wood fires that I have seen had to do with smoker designs. More like an oven than an open burner that has access to plenty of air.

I have not seen such a calculator. I suppose one could be made for certain size stoves using a wick design such as the StarLyte. My motto has always been: Never deny your stove oxygen. ;) Use a windscreen to control rate of burn just like the flue damper of a wood burner. Constrict the flow.
