The Theory of Flammability Limits. Radiative Losses and Selective Diffusional Demixing.
MISSING :38 pages
The concept of limit burning velocities is being used to formulate a quantitative theory of flammability limits. Competing and complicating processes dissipate power from a combustion wave and quench propagation at some characteristically low limit velocity. Two earlier reports dealt with process (a), natural convection (ri 8127); and with process (b) conductive-convective wall losses (ri 8469). This report considers process (c), radiative losses, and process (d), selective diffusional demixing.
