In this paper, we apply high-order finite difference (FD) schemes for multispecies and multireaction detonations (MMD). In MMD, the density and pressure are positive and the mass fraction of the ith species in the chemical reaction, say zi, is between 0 and 1, with ∑z_i=1. Due to the lack of maximum-principle, most of the previous bound-preserving technique cannot be applied directly. To preserve those bounds, we will use the positivity-preserving technique to all the z′is and enforce ∑z_i=1 by constructing conservative schemes, thanks to conservative time integrations and consistent numerical fluxes in the system. Moreover, detonation is an extreme singular mode of flame propagation in premixed gas, and the model contains a significant stiff source. It is well known that for hyperbolic equations with stiff source, the transition points in the numerical approximations near the shocks may trigger spurious shock speed, leading to wrong shock position. Intuitively, the high-order weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) scheme, which can suppress oscillations near the discontinuities, would be a good choice for spatial discretization. However, with the nonlinear weights, the numerical fluxes are no longer “consistent”, leading to nonconservative numerical schemes and the bound-preserving technique does not work. Numerical experiments demonstrate that, without further numerical techniques such as subcell resolutions, the conservative FD method with linear weights can yield better numerical approximations than the nonconservative WENO scheme.
