Abstract
The final report is a compendium of all the research activity on gaseous detonative combustion carried out by the Shock Wave Physics Group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at McGill University, Montreal. The time period of research effort reported corresponds to the contract period between July 1, 1986 and September 30, 1988. The research results cover topics of current interest in the field and overlap the DRES contractrual requirements outlined in the work statement. Thus the results attempt to (a) identify the mechanisms of transition and establish quantitative criteria for the onset of detonation, (b) examine the essential and universal role of transverse waves in detonation propagation, (c) determine the mechanisms of propagation of quasi-detonatioin waves, (d) establish quantitative criteria for detonation initiation via a hot turbulent jet and (e) explore the mechanisms of initiation of detonation in fuel spray-air clouds.
