Title: Effect Of Friction On The Zel'dovich Von Neumann Doring To Chapman Jouguet Transition
Author: Rao, Sushma
Abstract: Detonation theory proposes Chapman-Jouguet state of equilibrium due to the sonic speed of the products relative to the wave. Experimental observations however indicated the existence of a sub-Chapman-Jouguet state. The dissertation proposes that friction plays a role in defining such a sub-optimal state in detonation wave propagation in ducts. The problem is addressed analytically by decoupling the friction losses from the chemical reactions. The non-equilibrium conditions associated with detonation is modeled by detailed chemistry.
