Conference paper


When a detonation wave interacts with a wedge, the Mach reflection is occured. In this paper the DDT process of combustible gases and Mach reflection of detonation waves have been simulated numerically with a new CE/SE method. Simulated results are compared and verified with experiemntal results.
