Parallel Adaptive Simulation of Weak and Strong Transverse-Wave Structures in H2-O2 Detonations



Two- and three-dimensional simulation results are presented that investigate at great detail the temporal evolution of Mach reflection sub-structure patterns intrinsic to gaseous detonation waves. High local resolution is achieved by utilizing a distributed memory parallel shock-capturing finite volume code that employs blockstructured dynamic mesh adaptation. The computational approach, the implemented parallelization strategy, and the software design are discussed.
