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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
