Abstract# Detonation Shock Dynamics #DSD# can be used to model the e#ects
that shock curvature # has on detonation speed D n ###. At the edges of the
explosive# D n ### is supplemented with boundary conditons. By direct numerical
simulation #DNS## we study how the reaction zone interacts with the edge. DSD
theory has been integrated with the level#set method of Osher # Sethian and
the Los Alamos DNS code Mesa to create a powerful tool for simulating complex
explosive#containing systems.
Key words# Detonation# Curvature e#ect# Edge interactions# Mach re#ection
1. Introduction
To accurately predict the propagation of detonation through an explosive# one
needs to model the physics that occurs on the chemical reaction#zone scale # r .
