Abstract

In this paper we review the status of the simulation of detonations using the direct simulation Monte Carlo method and report on progress in applications to the hydrogenchlorine system. Recent work with this stochastic approach has demonstrated successes in treating simple model systems, confirmed many of the details found in earlier analyses, and revealed new phenomena such as ultrafast detonations. Current efforts are directed toward simulations for fully realistic kinetic systems. These require a more elaborate and detailed treatment of dissociation and recombination reactions as well as energy exchanges involving many degrees of freedom and discrete vibrational levels. Initial results are encouraging and indicate such calculations are feasible for complex reaction systems.
