Numerical simulations can be the key to the thorough understanding of the multi-dimensional nature of transient detonation waves. But the accurate approximation of realistic detonations is extremely demanding, because a wide range of different scales need to be resolved. This paper describes an entire solution strategy for the Euler equations of thermally perfect gas-mixtures with detailed chemical kinetics that is based on a highly adaptive finite volume method for blockstructured Cartesian meshes. Large-scale simulations of unstable detonation structures of hydrogen-oxygen detonations demonstrate the efficiency of the approach in practice.
