Deeper level coal mining is more frequently exposed to adverse effects which impair safety and slow down production. Such effects are primarily coal/rock/gas outbursts, rock bursts and bleeding. One more category of depressing effects includes chemically responsive dust and gas–air mixtures, as well as places of spontaneous heating. The latter change temperature fields in rocks and mine air, which essentially amplifies proneness of dust and gas–air mixtures to ignition and burning in the mode of deflagration or detonation. This article studies the problem on induced detonation as a result of gas outflow from underground cavity to mine roadway at supersonic speed. Based on the conservation law fundamentals, the formulas are obtained to characterize variation in velocities pressures and densities of dust and gas–air mixture flow at the shock wave front and on the Chapman–Jouguet surface. The graphs are constructed and help reveal some conditions and regular patterns of induced detonation process in dust and gas–air mixtures.
