S.Dorofeev


O in Small Obstructed Channelsbstacles giving high channel blockage ratio are destructive for the flame propagation (large momentum losses) and regardless turbulizing effect they decrease hazard of DDT

The importance of blockage ratio changes with the obstacle density. The higher blockage ratio the larger is optimum obstacle separation distance resulting in highest hazard for DDT.

The obstacle density is less important for the lean mixtures ( = 0.6) for which no detonation was observed in the experiments.

The predictions were found to be in general agreement with the correlation developed by Dorofeev et al.

Advanced simulations show DDT very well qualitatively but still are not able to predict it quantitatively (transition distance ?, transition probability?)
