Abstract:

Various problems associated with the macroscopic magnetohydrodynamic effects on an exothermal wave were treated on the basis of one-dimensional flow considerations. A steady exothermal wave traveling in an ionized medium under the influence of a transverse magnetic field was found to display properties similar to those of a classical detonation or deflagration wave. For a hydromagnetic exothermal wave, it was found that a discontinuity either in thermodynamic quantities or in magnetic field strength appears as soon as the flow reaches the transition region.
