Experimental investigations of the effect of the fuel
type, composition of the combustible mixture, geometry
of the combustion system and concentration of the
suppressing agent were investigated in a two-sectional
50 mm i.d. detonation tube. Depending on the initial
and boundary conditions, fast flames, quasi-detonations,
Chapman-Jouguet detonations, and over-driven detonations
were obtainable as possible modes of combustion. Each
of such combustion modes constituted a reference state
for further determination of the dynamic characteristics
of the suppression processes.
