Propagation of a gasless combustion wave in a narrow cylindrical duct without wall separation

  • B. L. Kopeliovich


The influence of the method of ignition of a gasless medium on the limiting sample radius and on the dynamics of the pulsations and average value of the thermal wave propagation velocity in the steady state at the combustion limit is established on the basis of a numerical investigation. The influence of mild heat losses on the temperature gradients and reaction depth is traced in a gasless combustion wave propagating without separation from the walls of a narrow cylindrical duct.
