Abstract : A reactive shock simulation model used to study the formation and propagation of shocks and detonations in condensed phase materials is described. Two test cases are given: (1) laser initiation of a shock wave propagating through water, and (2) the development of a detonation front from a hot spot in liquid nitromethne.
