Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate that an engineering device can be carefully designed in such a way that an overdriven solid state detonation can be initiated and propagated supersonically in a highly porous mixture of aluminum and Teflon. The equation of state and kinetics for the porous mixture are phenomenological models that were developed in our previous work [1]. This demonstration can be regarded as a good verification that the models which were used mainly in 1-D simulation are practically applicable and consistent to higher dimensional simulation of a shock dynamics in practical engineering devices.
