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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
