Abstract : A multi-effect passive detonation trap utilizes a manifold having a rectangularly shaped cross sectional area with oppositely disposed off-set pipeline fixedly connected thereto to attenuate an upstream detonation wave. The detonation wave is arrested by providing for maximum containment and self relief of the energy produced, directional control of the reaction, and a manifold configuration which assures extinction of the detonation wave.
