This book introduces the detonation phenomenon to engineers and graduate students with a background in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. Classical theories of detonation waves are presented, followed by chapters on the unstable structure. The final chapters cover wave formation, problems, and future directions.

'The Detonation Phenomenon by Professor John H. S. Lee is intended for engineers and graduate students with backgrounds in thermodynamics and fluid dynamics. It fulfills that mission perfectly. The book is an excellent, thorough review of the basic experimental and theoretical aspects of gas phase detonation.' Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics
'The mathematical material is broadly accessible to undergraduate and graduate students while at the same time providing a sophisticated tutorial for experienced researchers coming to detonation from other fields. … Lee's treatment is extensive but deliberately not encyclopedic.' AIAA Journal
'A key strength of this book is its comprehensive, and in places, stunning display of the experimental record of complex detonation dynamics. This is accompanied by lucid and plausible phenomenological explanations of observations, often supported by straightforward, mathematically based theories.' J. M. Powers, Shock Waves
Professor John H. S. Lee is a professor of mechanical engineering at McGill University. His research areas are in combustion, detonations and shock wave physics, and explosion dynamics; he has been carrying out fundamental and applied research in these areas for the past 40 years. He is a consultant and has served on numerous government and industrial advisory committees on explosion hazards and safety since the late 1960s. He is a recipient of the silver medal from the Combustion Institute (1980), the Dionizy Smolenski Medal from the Polish Academy of Sciences (1988), and the Nuna Manson gold medal (1991) for his outstanding contributions to the fundamentals and applied aspects of explosion and detonation phenomena. He is also a two-time recipient of the Faculty Outstanding Teaching Award (1989 and 1995) and was elected as honorary professor of the Institute of Mechanics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (2003) and recipient of the Outstanding Alumni Award of the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong (2003). He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.
