Theoretical and experimental studies were conducted to gain a basic understanding of low-velocity detonation LVD in confined energetic liquids. The main objective of the theoretical study was to develop satisfactory models for the initiation and propagation of LVD. LVD was modeled as a reactive shock discontinuity propagating in a liquid cavitated by liquid-wall interactions. A study of Hugoniot curves and numerical calculations on burning bubbles were undertaken to determine the amount of reaction required to support the wave.
