Theoretical Notes on the Mathematical Modelling of Gaseous Detonations Using Boltzmann Equation
K.M. Saqr, N.A.C. Sidik and M.A. Wahid

Abstract:
In this study, we present some theoretical notes on the use of the Boltzmann equation in computing detonation of combustible gases. The scarceness of relevant study, as well as the sensitivity of the topic, were the major motivations behind the intention to present these notes for publication. A timeline of the detonation phenomenon and its physical comprehension was drawn to justify the unsuitability of the continuum hypothesis of describing gaseous detonations. Then, the theory behind the Boltzmann equation and DSMC is elaborated. Finally, a discussion of the available study on the topic is introduced and concluded.
