Fifth International Colloquium on Pulsed and Continuous Detonations is cosponsored by the U.S. Office of Naval Research, Russian Foundation for Basic Research, International Science and Technology Center (ISTC), and The Federal State Enterprise «The Federal Center for Dual-Use Technologies "SOYUZ"» and supported by the Department of Chemistry and Material Science of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), Scientific Council on Combustion and Explosion RAS, and Scientific Council on Chemical Physics RAS.
The Colloquium is contemplated as a continuation of the previous four colloquia on detonations (“Advances in Experimentation and Computation of Detonations” held in St. Petersburg, September 14–17, 1998 (100 participants from 10 countries); “Control
of Detonation Processes” held in Moscow, July 4–7, 2000 (120 participants from 12 countries); “Advances in Confined Detonations” held
in Moscow, July 2–5, 2002 (120 participants from 12 countries),
and “Application of Detonation for Propulsion” held in St. Petersburg, July 6–9, 2004 (120 participants from 14 countries).
The objective of the Colloquium is to provide a forum to disseminate to the scientific community the world-wide state-of-the-art, and advancements made in experimental and computational, fundamental and applied studies relevant to propulsion systems operating on gaseous and heterogeneous detonations, and to determine
the avenues of research that is needed to design detonation engines for propulsion and stationary power plants. The primary focus
of the Colloquium will be to transfer the scientific accomplishments to commercial, industrial, and other applications of interest.
