In this paper the results are presented of a series of computations performed using the CULDESAC code. CULDESAC is a multiphase detonation model which is being developed in order to understand the detonation phase of a vapour explosion. The paper contains the results of a limited parameter survey and simulations for inhomogeneous initial coarse mixtures. The relevance of the results obtained to experimental data on vapour explosions is discussed. Also considered is the importance of modelling non-equilibrium effects in detonations. Finally, an overview of the status of detonation modelling is given.
