Combustion in hydraulically resisted flows.

Gregory I. Sivashinsky (2007)



The effects of hydraulic resistance on premixed gas combustion in tubes and inert porous beds are discussed on the basis of recent research. It is found that the hydraulic resistance causes a gradual precompression and preheating of the unburned gas adjacent to the advancing deflagration which may lead (after an extended induction period) to a localized thermal explosion triggering an abrupt transition from deglagrative to detonative combustion. The hydraulic resistance has a profound...

Stellar pulsations and gravitational waves

Kostas Kokkotas (1997)

Banach Center Publications


Pulsating stars are important sources of information for astrophysics. Nearly every star undergoes some kind of pulsation from the early stages of its formation until the very late ones i.e. the catastrophic creation of a supercompact object (white dwarf, neutron star or black hole). Pulsations of supercompact objects are of great importance for relativistic astrophysics since these pulsations are accompanied by the emission of gravitational radiation. In this review we shall discuss...
