The interaction of a detonation with a perforated plate
When a detonation is reflected from a perforated plate, a variety of different gasdynamic wave processes can occur depending on the blockage provided to the flow by the perforated plate and on the mixtures that are used. Upon the collision of the detonation with the perforated plate, a shock wave is reflected upstream to slow the flow behind the detonation to match the velocity of the flow through the perforated plate. The strength of the reflected shock increases as the blockage that the perforated plate provides to the flow increases.
