Growth of fluctuation during preignition period, typically observed for hydrogen-oxygen premixed gases to occur at about 1000 Y., is analyzed in some detail. The temperature fluctuation growth preceding ignition affects little on induction time at higher temperatures, whereas at lower temperatures corresponding to the mild ignition, the value is reduced considerably, in better agreement with observed data as compared with the previous ones based on a crude model with constant fluctuation.
