Abstract : Temperature gradients near the flame front and the concentration gradients for H atoms resulting from diffusion were calculated for the hydrogen-bromine system. These results indicate that reaction resulting from such diffusion can be much greater than that resulting from the heat flow. Relative diffusion rates of H2 and Br2 into the flame front were also calculated, and the significance of these with regard to flame shapes and other properties is discussed. (Author)
