Detonation diffraction

Filed under the keywords

A stably propagating detonation wave transitioning around a corner. The top video is a peak pressure histogram which shows the cellular structure of the transverse waves. The middle video is the instantaneous pressure and third video is the instantaneous temperature. Note the explosion that occurs in the bottom left corner that reignites the detonation.

Surprise Twist

Filed under the keywords

A video of particles passing over a plunging airfoil, modeled using a 2D unsteady vortex particle method.

Re-ignition

Filed under the keywords

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.

Iso-lated

Filed under the keywords

This is an image showing the phi meridonal angle on the blades of the compressor. The iso-surface displayed is of phi-meridon. The compressor is overlapped showing pressure on the blades as well as relative streamwise velocity.

Dante's Inferno

Filed under the keywords

The image is of a micro-Pulsed Plasma Thruster after being fired over 35,000 times. The thruster is made up of concentric rings of Copper and Teflon. When the thruster fires an electric arc forms over the surface, ablating and ionizing the Teflon propellant.
