Faculty Spotlight

The two images show hot spots in sub-detonation region after the first explosion during initiation in pure nitromethane (top) and cellular structures in fully developed detonation-front when the second explosion occurs (bottom). The bottom image is 500 µm in diameter.

Dr. Bhowmick and his co-authors from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign have recently reported real-time direct imaging of a detonation front on a tabletop apparatus using high-speed cameras. The images from nitromethane detonation revealed structures representative of the mechanochemistry, a feature anticipated by theoreticians decades ago but was not observed experimentally due to the associated engineering challenges in re-creating a detonation front on a tabletop. The results have been published in Combustion and Flame, a reputable scientific scholarly journal.
