Introduction

Many problems arise in connection with the use of detonation in engines and other power plants. The most important among them are detonation excitation and stabilization in combustion chambers. The detonation initiation within a layer under conditions of unbounded space and a fluid at rest was experimentally investigated in [1]. In the case of a combustion chamber bounded in the transverse direction, some new effects accompanying the detonation might be expected. The problem of detonation initiation in a supersonic flow of a stoichiometric propane-air mixture occupying partially or completely the cross-section of a plane channel is considered. The initiation in the flow is produced by a step or a wall completely cutting off the flow.
