The dynamic load in tubes due to detonation has a number of applications, such as in oil pipeline systems and pulse detonation engines. Various experimental, analytical, and numerical investigations have been conducted to study the mechanical, thermo-mechanical, and fracture behavior of tubes under internal detonation loads. Regarding numerical analysis, different approaches such as interface cohesive element, mesh-free, and extended finite element methods have been used to model the propagation of crack(s) in a tube. This paper presents a review of relevant literature pertaining to numerical and experimental analyses of detonation-driven deformation and fracture, and of studies based on the analytical investigation of moving loads in detonation tubes. The corresponding findings are discussed in detail, and possible avenues for future research are highlighted. (AU)
