    In the design of explosive systems the generic problem that one must consider is the propagation of a well-developed detonation wave sweeping through an explosive charge with a complex shape. At a given instant of time the ...

    We investigate hydrodynamic instability of a steady planar detonation wave propagating in a circular tube to three-dimensional linear perturbations, using the normal mode approach. Spinning instability is identified and ...

    Condensed phase explosives used in conventional explosive systems have a charge size on the order of a meter or a sizable fraction of a meter. This paper addresses a range of issues required to scale down the size of ...
