Abstract
In a Bureau of Mines study, unsteady, spherically symmetric, one- dimensional, compressible-flow (finite sound speed) equations were solved numerically for a spherical deflagration propagating concentrically in a spherical vessel with mach numbers ranging from 0.2 to 0.7; Trajectory histories agree with the infinite-sound-speed theory developed by perlee, fuller, and saul (pfs). A preliminary result of this study shows that flames propagating with speeds greater than 20 pct the speed of sound in the unburned gas mixture generate a complex history of aerodynamic waves distributed throughout the spherical vessel. Although the average pressure and flame radius agree with those predicted by the pfs models, the aerodynamic waves have a pronounced effect on the flame velocity, differing appreciably from that predicted by the pfs model.
