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.
