In this test case, a slab of explosive in a stick form, is confined inside a container. The explosive material is initiated by the booster, which forms a detonation wave that propagates to the right in reactive material (explosives). The high pressure behind the detonation front forces the structure confiner to deformation. The explosive considered in this scenario is LX-17 and the Ignition and Growth (I&G) reaction rate law is assumed.
