Safety,explosion,hydrocarbon,detonations,Abstract: Hazards caused by explosion of hydrocarbon-air mixtures are a continuing problem. Of the factors affecting explosion hazards of hydrocarbon-air mixture, additives play an important role. In this paper, a series of experiments are described addressing the influence of chemical additives on explosion of some hydrocarbon-air mixtures under confined conditions. Also critical initiation energy of explosion of some hydrocarbon-air mixtures has been measured. Safety analysis of the studied hydrocarbons is also carried out using the experimental results.
