Abstract : The literature related to the flammability and explosion limits of H2/O2,H2/O2/diluent, CO/H2/O2, and CO/H2/air mixtures is reviewed, with particular attention to those aspects relevant to space- and launch vehicle- related conditions. The discussion is hardly exhaustive but is meant to be reasonably self-contained. Applications to a recent Atlas II AC-101 booster system exhaust leak are considered.
