Abstract

The Monte Carlo simulation of detonation waves in gaseous reaction systems was discussed. The simulation give the details of the coupled gas-dynamic and reaction effects, temperature, velocity, density, pressure and species profiles for the detonation waves. The systems were simplified and clarified by restriction to one-dimensional flow with the reaction A + M → B + M having variable energy release and rate characteristics. The analysis showed that the simulations provides a solution to the unsolved problem of overlapping shock and reaction zones.
