Abstract:Results indicate that the induction delay for the aluminum particles, combined with endothermic processes, alter the structure of the reaction zone, and produce a secondary shock wave which never reaches the detonation wave front. Additionally, under certain combinations of heat transfer rate and chemical release rate, the measured behavior can be reproduced, and the model results indicate that these phenomena have a significant effect on the detonation parameters and should be included in future models.
