Abstract: The cellular structure of heterogeneous detonations in a low vapor pressure fuel (decane) droplet mixture with oxygen and nitrogen was studied in the present investigation. The aerosol was generated by an ultrasonic nebulizer and the fuel concentration of the mixture was regulated by monitoring the volume flow rate of oxygen and nitrogen through the nebulizer. The vertical detonation tube is 64 mm in diameter and 3 m long and ignition was by a powerful spark (120 joules stored energy) or by a high explosive d…
