Abstract : The theory of the detonation wave in a finite charge is being investigated. For a curved detonation front, it is possible to calculate the radial detonation velocity on the assumption that (1) the reaction zone length is constant, (2) the flow in any small region of the shock front is spherical and (3) of the thermodynamichydrodynamic continuity equations for a steadystate detonation wave only the equation for the conservation of matter is strongly perturbed by the edge effects.
