Overall research objectives were to study energetic materials of interest to the NavyDoD at the high-pressure and high-temperature of detonation to study the initiation mechanism of detonation to learn the phase, lattice, and molecular symmetry, and measure theoretical maximum density TMD of a material at high pressure and temperature just before initiation to understand exactly what chemical bonds are most energetic and why, at the pressure and temperature of detonation to model the global kinetics and reaction mechanism of energetic materials during detonative reactions.
