Abstract : Experiments on the effects of diluents on burning velocities in H2-Br2 mixtures were made using N2, A, and He as diluents, with 10 percent and 25 percent of diluent and at 50C and 200C. The predominant trend is for a decrease in burning velocity with the magnitude of the effect varying in the order He<A<N2. With the lesser amounts of helium, burning velocities were actually increased somewhat on occasion. The region of stable flame was shifted toward higher bromine percentages when diluents were added.
