The upper limit of flammability of hydrogen in air, oxygen, and oxygen-inert mixtures at elevated pressures

Holmstedt, Göran LU (1971) In Combustion and Flame 17(3). p.295-301
Abstract
The upper limit of flammability of hydrogen in air, oxygen, oxygen-helium, oxygen-neon, oxygen-argon and oxygen-carbon dioxide mixtures was measured at room temperature and pressures between 0.97 and 29 atm in two cylindrical bombs with volumes of 1.5 and 5.2 liters. The limit in ternary mixtures was determined in 20%, 40%, 60% and 80% helium, 20% neon and argon and 10% carbon dioxide concentrations. The maximum safe percentage of oxygen in a hydrogen-oxygen-helium mixture was calculated for pressures between 0.97 and 29 atm.
