Abstract: Experiments and calculations have been performed for a methane-air coflow diffusion flame, in the cup-burner configuration, with CF 3 Br or Br 2 added to the air stream. The time-dependent, two-dimensional numerical code, which includes a detailed kinetic model and diffusive transport, has predicted the flame extinction within 4 or 8% for each. Analysis of the flame structure has allowed the mechanisms of flame weakening in the base and trailing flame regions to be compared. The agents CF 3 Br and Br 2 behave…
