Numerical Study of Detonation Wave Propagation in Narrow Channels
Progress toward the miniaturization of increasingly advanced micro- and nanoelectromechanical systems has highlighted the need for a better knowledge of the design of such devices. In the field of energy and power, as the systems are scaled down the thermal efficiency of conventional propellant devices is seriously degraded due to significant heat losses which can cause the combustion extinction. A promising technique is to use shock or detonation waves in gaseous media to enhance the chemical reaction rates . In addition to the classical safety issues, possible applications  of micro-detonations refer to energy production, propulsion or actuation , , or to the predetonator of a pulsed detonation engine. For energetic materials, microscale applications may include detonation interaction with microstructure .
