Art-in-Science competition

The following image, submitted by Lt Robert Fievisohn of the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT/ENY), won 1st place in the 35th Dayton-Cincinnati Aerospace Sciences Symposium (DCASS) Art-in-Science competition (Image category).


The image shows a smokefoil record of a two-dimensional detonation transitioning from a pre-detonator to a thrust tube for a pulse detonation engine. The transition was successful since the detonation re-ignited off the walls at the beginning of the thrust tube. The smokefoil record is generated by taking a pressure histogram of the transient data.
