The non-stationary problem of exciting a plane shock wave by gas detonation in a tube is numerically solved. The case, when the field of mixing the reacting and inert gases filling the closed tube end has finite size, is considered. The influence of mixing field width on the intensity and damping law of excited shock waves is studied. Ignoring energy losses, the problem solution is determined by one dimensionless parameter equal to the ratio of gas mixture volume in the mixing field to the volume of reacting gas located in the tube before the detonation is initiated. By varying this parameter within the range from 0 to 2, the maximal value for the Mach number of the shock wave in inert gas (air) is decreased by about 20%. It is established that decrease pattern of the shock-wave front velocity can be approximately described by the dependence corresponding to the conclusions made from the theory of point explosion for the case of plane adiabatic gas motions.
