Abstract:

The research supported by AFOSR-AASERT grant F49620-95-L-0411 parent grant F49620-95-L-0310 for the period 1 June 1995 to 31 May 1999 is described. The purpose of the research is the formulation of methods and realistic models for studying the fundamental properties and behavior of insensitive energetic materials. The work performed during this grant focused on the development of intramolecular potentials to describe the vibrational dynamics of the insensitive energetic materials NTO 5-nitro-2,4-dihydro-3H-1,2,4-triazol-3-one and ANTA 5-amino-3-nitro-1H-1,2,4-triazole. In addition, the applicability of intramolecular dynamics diffusion theory IDDT for computing reaction rates in large, complex systems such as energetic molecules and solids was demonstrated.
