Detonation, also referred to as knocking in gasoline engines happens when the gasoline vapor in the cylinder ignites prematurely before the piston is in an optimum position in the cylinder, usually, slightly before the piston has reached it maximum extension in the cylinder (referred to as BTDC - before top dead center). The solution is to try using a higher octane of gasoline as the higher octane slows the burning of the gasoline. If you are already using a 93 or 94 octane gasoline, take your vehicle to your friendly mechanic. As there may be other issues involved such as the incorrect timing of the engine.

Detonation - band - was created in 1997.

knocking and detonation are not a both phenomena but i don no know

It can withstand some blast and shrapnel. It would depend on the strength of the detonation.

Cannot determine as there are too many variables:yield of the bombheight/depth of the detonationterrain around the detonation sitestructures standing around site before detonationif underground detonation what the rock types are and degree of fortification of targetIf underwater detonation what types of ships, etc. are at what distances and depthsetc.

The only opposite of a detonation (explosion, blast) would be a misfire or fizzle, or the accompanying silence.Implosion, collapse.

You can but your ignition timing and cam timing, if you have adjustable cams will be retarded to stop detonation. Fuel economy and performance will drop.

Detonation involves a supersonic exothermic. Knocking in a engine is spark-ignition internal combustion.

There are no antonyms for the word 'detonation'.

A knock sensor is a device that senses detonation. Detonation occurs in the engine when the fuel begins to burn prematurely; it can cause substantial damage to the engine.

could be either. for example, vinegar and baking soda is chemical. overfilled balloon popping is physical. it depends on what detonation you are talking about

Any detonation of an explosive nuclear weapon on or near the surface of the Earth will at some point result in a mushroom cloud.

None, every kind of radiation emitted during a nuclear detonation can be emitted under other conditions also.
