News from Matei Radulescu's research group at the University of Ottawa.
Our new detonation driven shock tube
Our new detonation driven shock tube is now up and running. Modular
length, 12 inch internal diameter, rated for atmospheric pressure
detonations, modular reactive driver volume, and outfitted with the
Yellow Submarine as receptor/dump tank with optical access.
Happy holidays to all from our research group at the University of Ottawa! From left, Hongxia Yang (PhD), Farzane Zangene (PhD), Willstrong Rakotarison (PhD), me, Kevin Cheevers (MASc), Aliou Sow (postdoc), Qiuang Xiao (PhD) and Ramki Murugesan (PhD).
Qiang Xiao defended successfully his PhD thesis on the Dynamics of Detonations with Lateral Strain, showing that, gauged with respect to the steady ZND model, detonability in enhanced with increasing instability. Congratulations Qiang! Thesis details coming soon...
