A further development of the friction-based concept of the deflagration-to-detonation transition is presented. Employing Zeldovich's quasi-one-dimensional formulation for combustion in hydraulically resisted flows, the autoignition of the unburned gas subjected to the friction-induced precompression and preheating is assessed. It is shown that autoignition, triggering the transition, is readily attainable for quite realistic parameters.
