detonation wave

detonation wave

[‚det·ən′ā·shən ‚wāv]
(fluid mechanics)
A shock wave that accompanies detonation and has a shock front followed by a region of decreasing pressure in which the reaction occurs.

The detonation wave velocity error may be as great as 1.5%, which indicates that the error of ignition delay time during validation of reduced chemical reaction mechanism for ethylene combustion is acceptable.
Moreover, a parametric study on the influence of the basic dimensions of the meandering wall on the attenuation of the produced detonation wave is carried out.
[1], the shape has a significant effect on the dissipation of the detonation wave arising in front of the vehicle.
A hollow aluminum pusher with a boron content of 511B (up to 40%), designed to absorb neutrons emitted from the plutonium-uranium assembly and to reduce the pressure drop behind the front of the detonation wave in the explosive shell (this solution increased the pressure of the gas-dynamic wave that passed to the center) diameter of 460 mm had a thickness of about 115 mm and weighed up to 120 kg [6].
Overseas scholars have come up with C-J theory, which simplifies the detonation wave to strong discontinuity surface contained chemical reactions and gives the conclusion of stable spread of detonation wave under the circumstances of C-J conditions.
The detonation wave spread in the rock mass gives the maximum pressure [P.sub.max] in the contact interface of explosive and rock.

Continued propagation of the wave down the pipe following the DDT leads to "'overdriven detonation." This is a transient state where the detonation wave overshoots its steady state velocity.
The technique provides a focused, high power ignition source which could pave the way for a variety of new applications, including futuristic "pulse detonation wave" engines for supersonic aircraft, and advanced metal forming and manufacturing techniques.
The point of ignition and ignition explosive Semtex was selected in such a manner that the detonation wave would be directed approximately in parallel with material length.
