To better design energetic materials and predict their energy output and response it is necessary to characterise these materials in terms of their energetics. Indeed, this characterisation demands a series of experiments ranging from slow cook off of the material to high velocity flyer plate impact tests are necessary to obtain parameters such as the detonation velocity, densities, shock and particle velocities and critical pressures. These experimental parameters are required to obtain the Chapman-Jouguet parameters that define the point at which the detonation occurs. The mean objective of this work is to conduct numerical experiments to examine the parameters that define detonation process and establish a completely numerical approach by using quantum mechanics and analytical methods.
