Abstract : The velocity of steady detonation waves in gaseous ozone has been measured over a wide range of conditions: in tubes of diameter between 1 and 25.4 mm., at initial pressures below 80 and 220 Torr and in mixtures containing from 72.5 to 96.6% ozone in oxygen or argon. The experimental velocities, extrapolated to infinite tube diameter, agree within experimental error with those calculated by the classical theory of Chapman and Jouguet. (Author)
