Title:On dynamics of multi-dimensional detonation
Author(s):Yao, Jin; Stewart, D. Scott
Subject(s):Multi-dimensional Detonation
Abstract:We outline an asymptotic theory for the dynamics of detonation when the radius of curvature of the detonation shock is large compared to the one-dimensional steady, Chapman-Jouguet (CJ), detonation reaction-zone thickness. The theory includes the limits of near-CJ detonation , and when the normal detonation velocity is significantly below its CJ-value. The curvature of the detonation can also be of either sign corresponding to both diverging and converging geometries. In particular, we derive an intrinsic, partial differential equation (PDE) for the motion of the shock surface, that is hyperbolic in character, and is a relation between the normal detonation shock velocity, shock curvature and the acceleration of the shock along its normal. The derivation includes consideration of additional time-dependence in the slowly-varying reaction-zone than that considered in previous works. A simpler version of the shock evolution equation is derived in the limit of large-activation-energy. Illustrative examples of numerical solutions of intrinsic hyperbolic evolution equations are presented.
