Paper Abstract

The present solution of the problem of gas flow around a hollow ball demonstrates why the velocity of a laser deflagration wave is an order of magnitude higher than the velocity of the wave driven by heat conductivity. Attention is given to the numerical siumulation of continuous optical discharge motion in a parallel beam; simulation results are compared with experimental data and found to be in agreement
