Multi-component Euler EquationsThe governing equations of gaseous detonations are the multi-component Euler equations with chemical reactive source terms. These equations can be written in conservation form with K inhomogeneous continuity equationsford momentum equationsforand an energy equationAccording to Dalton's law, the total pressure p is the sum of the partial pressures pi, i.e.withandFor detailed chemical reaction, all species are usually assumed to be thermally perfect gases with a caloric equationwithThis model requires the computation of the temperature T from the implicit equationwhenever the pressure has to evaluated.
