Abstract

This paper studies the propagation of detonation and shock waves in vortex gas flows, in which the initial pressure, density, and velocity are generally functions of the coordinate — the distance from the symmetry axis. Rotational axisymmetric flow having a transverse velocity component in addition to a nonuniform longitudinal velocity is considered. The possibility of propagation of Chapman–Jouguet detonation waves in rotating flows is analyzed. A necessary conditions for the existence of a Chapman–Jouguet wave is obtained.
