Flame velocities over a wide composition range for pentane-air, ethylene-air, and propyne-air flames

Simon, Dorothy M., Wong, Edgar, L.

Fundamental flame velocities are reported for pentane air, ethylene-air, and propylene-air mixtures for the concentration range 60 to 130 percent of stoichiometric. A form of the Tanford and Pease equation, which includes a small constant velocity term independent of diffusion, will predict the observed changes in flame velocity.
