Ignition of fuel/oxygen/nitrogen mixtures over platinum wire was experimentally studied by using microcalorimetry and by restricting the flow to the low Reynolds number range such that axisymmetry prevailed. The fuels studied were propane, butane, propylene, ethylene, carbon monoxide and hydrogen. Parameters investigated included flow velocity, fuel type and concentration, and oxygen concentration.
