Ratio of the nuclear energy released in a Chapman-Jouguet detonation, qCJ, to the increase in specific internal energy of the fuel needed to achieve the shocked state, Δ(e), as a function of fuel density. Open squares belong to a fuel composition of X(12C) = X(16O) = 0.5, while solid squares are for initial composition X(12C) = 0.2 and X(16O) = 0.8. A dotted line indicates the minimum qCJ necessary for self-sustained detonation propagation qCJ = Δ(e).
