Analysis of the experimental results of the initiation of detonation in short tubes with kerosene oxidizer mixtures

Jan Kindracki


The paper describes the experimental investigation of detonation initiation in a mixture of kerosene oxidant in a short test tube. Various mixtures of oxygen and nitrogen were used as an oxidant, from pure oxygen to the composition of air. The goal of the study was to determine the minimum diameter of the tube and the minimum level of energy needed for the direct initiation of detonation. As a result of the measurements the pressure courses were obtained for two kinds of cases: with and without (only shock waves) of fuel injection. The results of both kinds of measurements were compared, providing information about the initiation of detonation in a fueleoxidizer mixture. Brief analyses of the results for different initiators and different oxidizers were performed and compared with the shock wave and Chapmane-Jouget velocity.
