Abstract : Experiments are described in which a hemispherical detonation wave was gradually transformed into a strongly overdriven plane wave by the use of a high-density confinement nozzle. The resulting wave had a peak pressure of up to two times the Chapman-Jouguet value and a planarity of plus or minus 1 mm over a 4.3 cm diameter. (Author)
