XLVII.—The propagation of flame in mixtures of acetylene and air

Walter Mason, Richard Vernon Wheeler
1919 Journal of the Chemical Society Transactions  
MEASUREMENTS of the speed of the "uniform movement " during the horizontal propagation of flame in mixtures of acetylene and air have recently been made by Haward and Sastry (T., 1917, 111, 841) in revision of earlier determinations by L e Chatelier (Compt. Tend., 1895, 121, 1144) . The elect'rical method of measuring the speeds of the flames employed by Haward and Sastry was found by them to be unsatisfactory when the propagation took place in a tube of as large a diameter as 25 m., the
