A fuel-air explosion, for example one from a gasoline vapor and air mixture, is characterized by the circumstance that the explosive energy is initially distributed and released throughout a relatively large volume. This contrasts with an explosion from a material such as dynamite, where the energy release is initially concentrated into a relatively small volume.
