    Abstract

    Study of detonation interactions inside a two-dimensional ejector using detonation transmission tubing was reported. The main objective of the ejector assembly in the study is to make the flow-field as close to 2-D as possible. Optical-grade Perspex sheets with a thickness of 10 mm were used on both sides of the nozzle to allow visualization of the flow. Wall pressure measurements were conducted at the locations. The NONEL tube was flush with the entrance of the nozzle. The signal to begin pressure measurements and image acquisition was obtained through a Kulite XT-190 transducer. The detonation was initiate by an electronic blasting machine, DynoStart 2, with a capacitance of 0.2μF and an output voltage of 2500 V. High-speed shadowgraphy was employed to visualize the flow. The results show that the effects of 3-D flow at the initial stage of the detonation affect the incident shock front and the reflected shock wave system at the nozzle entrance.
