Abstract: 

The gaseous detonation wave is studied in two parts : an analysis based on a one-dimensional quasi-steady model for the wave front and a one-dimensional nonsteady model for the flow field.

The theoretical investigation of the effects of electromagnetic fields , heat transfer and viscous boundary layers on the properties such as velocity , pressure and temperature are presented both for the wave front and for each point in the flow field.

Results of numerical solutions , using heat transfer and viscous boundary layer effects proposed by Gooderum (1) and Fay (2) together with electric fields and current distributions obtained from experimental measurements by Plett (3) , for cases with electric fields only and for electric fields plus both positive and negative Lorentz forces are presented.
