Default Chimneys

Can someone enlighten me about how chimneys were/are sized? The diameter must be related to the flue area, but in what ratio? How does diameter interact with the height required to achieve an optimum draft? Does the fuel being burned (and the grate design) affect the proportions of the stacks? Old photos show such a diversity of diameter/height ratios that I've gotten curious.
