Abstract : A study is made of a combustion-driven spherical implosion wave inside a hemispherical cavity, using a finite difference method to integrate the one-dimensional Lagrangian gasdynamic equations, combined with an artificial pressure term to represent the shocks and a realistic equation of state for the stoichiometric hydrogen-oxygen mixture. The application of this technique is studied in some detail.
