Isothermal detonation and its stochastic modeling

  • A. P. Ershov


An isothermal model describing detonation under confined conditions, for example, in a porous medium; in a reasonable approximation is presented. It is shown that such a detonation can be analyzed qualitatively by the stochastic method of cellular automata.
