Hey, Amos, there is a talk at UTA that you should come listen to:
Triple-Point Shear Layers in Gaseous Detonation Waves
Dr. Luca Massa, a visiting professor at Clemson University, will describe the role of vortical structures associated with Kelvin-Helmholtz instability in the formation of localized ignition. Recent experiments have shown intriguing regions of intense luminescence or 'hot spots' in the vicinity of triple-point shear layers in propagating gaseous detonation waves. Localized explosions have also been observed to develop in these fronts. The mechanical & aerospace engineering department sponsors the free event.
Took a minute to realize this didn't have to do with getting extra green stamps for getting a hair cut at the water park gas station . . .
