Abstract:

Following is a translation of the article entitled O perekhode medlennogo goreniya v detonatsiyu English version above by K. I. Shchelkin in Zhurnal Eksperimentalnoy i Teoreticheskoy Fiziki Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics, Vol 24, No 5, Moscow, May 1953, pages 589-600. This present paper deals with the elementary theory of transformation of slow burning into detonation in tubes. It is shown in this paper that the basic cause of pre-detonational acceleration of burning in tubes lies in the effect of the movement of unburned gas on the burning, and, first of all, the effect of the turbulence of this gas upon the velocity of the flame.
