Abstract : A low-pressure burner for measuring flame speeds and spectra of inhibited borane-air mixtures has been completed and tested. Shock tube studies of two diborane-argon mixtures at 600 to 700 K indicate first order kinetics for the decomposi tion of diborane. A rapid approximate method for calculating induction times of hydrogen oxygen-argtures is being developed. (Author)
