Abstract
BlazeTech proposes a rugged, cost-effective probe which can record the time history of the dynamic pressure in a hostile flow including entrained particulate matter. We will compile a list of flow properties of detonations of interest and perform a detailed study of the expected response of the probe. We will then demonstrate the technical feasibility by conducting critical analysis and selected lab-scale tests with a particle-laden flow.
