Abstract: Propagation of flames and detonation waves in fuelair mixtures with inhibitor additives is studied. Propane and hydrogen are chosen as fuels and tetrafluorodibrorooethane as an inhibitor. Experiments are performed in a tube. The detonation and flammability limits are determined as functions of the inhibitor concentration in the mixture. For propane-air mixtures the additive decreases the detonation velocity beyond the value characteristic of detonation limits of noninhibited mix* tures.The flammability limits…
