We report the successful simulation of detonation waves using the direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method. The simulations provide the full details of the coupled gas-dynamic and reaction effects as well as temperature, velocity, density, pressure, and species profiles for the detonation waves. The systems treated are simplified and clarified by restriction to the reaction A→B with variable energy release and rate characteristics and with ideal and calorically perfect gas reactants and products. Results are compared with the predictions based on the Chapman-Jouguet condition.
