The presence of cavities in explosives is known to sensitize the material and cause ignition where it wouldn’t occur if the voids were not present. Numerical simulations of shock-induced air-bubble collapse in water present the dominant physical mechanisms present in the collapse process, while multiple bubble cluster simulations provide a picture of the interactions of the collapse of neighbouring cavities. This provides a strong basis to approaching the level of understanding the physical mechanisms that contribute to the start of ignition in heterogeneous explosives.
