Front Structure of Detonation and the Stability of Detonation
The physics of propagation of detonation waves is still a challenging topic in the community. As have been found in experiments and 3D simulations of detonation physics, there are three types of detonation front structures. These are: rectangular mode, oblique mode, and spinning mode [1-6], as shown in Fig.1. For the rectangular modes, there are two further classifications: in phase detonation and out of phase detonation. A logical question raised is: what are the conditions leading to each front structure observed? Is there any relationship among these front structures? These questions provided the motivation for the present investigation.
