Numerical simulations of freely propagating flames burning $H_2/HCl/Air$ Air mixtures were performed at atmospheric pressure in order to understand the effect of hydrogen chloride on flame structures. The chemical and physical effects of hydrogen chloride on flame structures were observed. A chemical kinetic mechanism was developed, which involved 26 gas-phase species and 198 forward elementary reactions. Under several equivalence ratios the flame speeds were calculated and compared with those obtained from the experiments, the results of which were in good agreement. As hydrogen chloride as additive was added into $H_2/Air$ flame, the flame speed, radical concentration and NO production rate were decreased. The chemical effect of hydrogen chloride caused the reduction of radical concentration, and then the decrease of the net rate of NO production. It was found that the influence in the reduction of $EI_{NO}$ with the addition of hydrogen chloride was attributed more due to the chemical effect than the physical effect.
