A numerical simulation of the ignition of organic explosives (PETN, HMX, RDX, TATB) with an electron beam was performed. A criterion for the ignition of energetic materials with a melting point below the temperature of ignition is obtained. The results of numerical calculations of the critical energy density of the electron beam are consistent with the criterion of ignition. Calculations of the critical energy density of PETN ignition in good agreement with the experiment. The most sensitive is PETN and the most heat-resistant is TATB.
