As an alternative to homogeneous reaction rates, we implement "synthetic" hot-spots through a depletion rate that is a function of the local pressure multiplied by a periodic function of the spatial coordinates. We investigate through numerical simulations how the detonation propagation is affected by the heterogeneous rate.
