The sole use of LSM may suffer from the problem in treating the interface separating two fluids. To overcome this difficulty, an interface method or multi-fluid method would be required. In my ph.d research, I employed a ghost fluid method coupled with the LSM. In that work, the LSM was only used to provide the interface information embeded in the fluid domain. Based on the interface information, a special technique to treat the discontinuity across the interface was required. As far as I know, the LSM cannot be solely used to simulate the detonation while it can play an important role in muti-fluid flow simulations. Please refer to the words, "ghost fluid method","immerged interface method","sharp interface method","multi-fluid method" and so forth. This statement is mainly based on my experience but it might be general. If you have an idea with the LSM only, I also need your help. The multi-fluid flow simulations are not trivial since the material discontinuity is presented near the interface separating two fluids.

I belive they used a shock fitting scheme to track the detonation front, rather than capturing it. I know that Scott Stewart (University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign) and Rupert Klein (RWTH Achaen) have also been involved in this in the past. As mentioned by Jinwon, I don't think level sets are the way to go though as simulating shocks requires strong conservation, which I don't believe is a solved problem (I may be wrong though).
