Abstract : The smoke foil technique is being used to study the transient behavior of transverse wave systems on propagating detonations that encounter either compositional or tube area changes. A technique has been developed which allows the measurement of the strength of individual transverse waves at each intersection with a wave of the other family from the observed deflection of the wave trajectories at the intersections. Observation has been made of positive decay of transverse waves in situations where the waves are forced to be too close together and it has been observed that the production of new waves when necessary is complex.
