Abstract : The initiation and characteristics of detonations in gas mixtures heated to high temperatures by a shock wave are observed experimentally at low pressures. Numerical calculations of the reaction kinetics of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures highly diluted with argon were confirmed. Vibrationless stable detonation may occur. The calculated characteristics of such detonation agree with the experimental values. It is still impossible to determine the effect of preheating on reaction initiation mechanisms in high temperature mixtures. (Author)
