Learned a few new things! And you were right, detonation can be sustained in lamda/3 in tubes. At least according to that reference, tho it may be harder to initiate DDT in a tube that small.

I thought H2 was the smallest cell size. But acetelyne is even smaller with cell sizes of about 5mm! I can construct a PDE by boring holes in a solid chunk of steel for cells sizes that small.
