A high performance diaphragm shock tube with an imploding detonation driver
The performance of a diaphragm shock tube with an imploding detonation driver is theoretically and experimentally investigated. Strong shock waves are produced by a driver in which a detonation is forced to implode to the apex of a conical channel. In this geometry, the area convergence experienced by the imploding front elevates the driver gas temperature and pressure above the usual Chapman-Jouguet values, thereby increasing the strength of the test shock. Theoretically, the relationshipdoi:10.14288/1.0084844 fatcat:4kwqfjikanbd7lhef3b2m7gn4a
