Abstract

In this paper we use the multiphase flow code CULDESAC to compute detonations in two-component mixtures. We present results showing the different types of detonations which are possible and illustrate the effect of varying the initial conditions and geometry, and changing the constitutive relations, on the form of the solution obtained. This work represents the first stage in the development of a multi-component model of the propagation stage of a steam explosion.
