Welcome to the GALCIT Explosion Dynamics Laboratory Detonation Database. The goal of this project is to compile, catalog and present experimental data on gaseous detonations. These data currently include cell width, critical tube diameter, initiation energy, and minimum tube diameter. They are formatted in tables and summary graphs, with citations to the original references. A printed version and a World Wide Web version have been prepared. The purpose of this database is to facilitate explosion hazards evaluations and comparisons with numerical simulations of detonation behavior.
