A single-headed spinning detonation wave is observed in molecular dynamics simulations of a condensed phase detonation of an energetic material confined to a round tube. The EM is modeled using a modified AB reactive empirical bond order (REBO) potential. The simulated spinning detonation is similar to those observed in the gas phase. However, in addition to the incident, oblique, and transverse shock waves well known from gas-phase spinning detonations, a contact shock wave generated by a contact discontinuity is uncovered in our MD simulations.
