Numerical Simulations of Gaseous Detonations
Next: Inflow Angle 45 Degree Up: Mach Reflection of a Previous: Inflow Angle 75 Degree
Inflow Angle 60 Degree, H2:O2:Ar / 2:1:7, T0=298 K, p0=10.0 kPa
Schlieren plots of the density and temperature field after 48 microseconds. The Mach reflection is clearly visible.
The Mach reflection leads to a high overdrive factor behind the Mach stem that suppresses the regular transverse oscillation and the detonation cells fade away.
