Abstract

Pressure and impulse in the pressure wave determine the danger level resulting from an explosion of hydrogenous combustible mixtures. The main measurable blast wave parameters are presented in the diagram (Fig. 10.1). The blast wave pressure in a gas explosion is a function of the energy release rate and it reaches a maximum at the detonation mode of combustion [1–4].
