The burning velocity is an important parameter which
characterizes the inhibition efficiency of
halon-containing additives employed as flame retardants.
The burning velocity decreased with increasing inhibitor
concentration. Rosser et al. studied experimentally the
inhibition effect of different additives on methane
flames and found that the burning velocity decreased
linearly with increasing additive concentration for
concentrations less than 0.5% by volume. In addition,
Rosser et al. used the parameter [see report] as a
measure of inhibition efficiency.
