Abstract : Measurements were made of flame velocities in straight tubes for hydrogen-bromine and deuterium-bromine mixtures. From these the burning velocities were determined. The results for hydrogen-bromine mixtures were in agreement with earlier data based on Bunsen-type flames, though absolute values of burning velocities are somewhat lower. Comparison of the observed effects of substituting deuterium for hydrogen with predictions based on various theoretical equations showed that the Manson equation gave poor results but the Tanford and Semenov-Frank-Kamenetsky equations gave equally satisfactory predictions.
