Welcome!

These webpages are for and about the community of researchers that are interested in the scientific study of gaseous explosions and nonsteady combustion. ICDERS is the acronym of the international meeting and IDERS is the acronym of the sponsoring organization. There is no formal membership requirements to participate in ICDERS. Anyone interested in the science of explosions and reactive systems is encouraged to attend and welcomed at participate in ICDERS.

The subject matter of Dynamics of Explosions is concerned principally with the interrelationship between rate process of energy deposition in compressible media and its flow field, as it occurs typically in detonations. Dynamics of Reactive Systems is concerned with non-steady coupling between the flow system and the exothermic reactions, as they occur typically in the course of combustion.
