Abstract:

An investigation is being made of deflagration and growth to detonation in liquids and solids with special reference to the role of small discontinuities in promoting sensitivity, and the Deflagration, Detonation Transition. As with previous reports it will be seen that the approach has been on a fairly broad front covering a range of experimental studies. The results are discussed under separate headings.
