Abstract:

The importance of the specific heat Cp of CHNO energetic polymers relative to their impact shock sensitivity has been documented in MICOM TR-RD-SS-95-2, AMCOM TR-KD-SS-99-8, and RDECOM TR- AMR-SS-06-09. A follow-on-report, RDECOM TR-AMR-SS-06-35, documents a proposed nominalgeneric NG Cp for CHNO energetic materials. The motivation for this proposed NG Cp was its utilization to predict Cp for energetic polymers whose Cp was unknown. This report documents the successful application of the NG Cp concept to predict the Cp for a relatively new CHNO explosive, FOX-7.
