Abstract:

Experiments on the effects of diluents on burning velocities in H2-Br2 mixtures were made using N2, A, and He as diluents, with 10 percent and 25 percent of diluent and at 50C and 200C. The predominant trend is for a decrease in burning velocity with the magnitude of the effect varying in the order HeAN2. With the lesser amounts of helium, burning velocities were actually increased somewhat on occasion. The region of stable flame was shifted toward higher bromine percentages when diluents were added.
