Research Institution
1,3,3-Trinitroazetidine (TNAZ) exhibits some unusual and potentially valuable properties for explosives applications. Objectives of Phase I program include the selection of candidate energetic formulations using computational methods. A technical prerequisite to performing valid computations fo energetic performance of composition is a basic understanding of their physical proterties. In the case of binary formulation, this must include the parameters of solid-state solutions. Performance calculations of formulations of greates theoretical interest (following characterization of phase equilibria) will be conducted. ARDEC's TIGER PC will be of greates utility in this project for determining thermochemical and hydrodynamic proterties of formulations. The most theoretically promising candidates will be formulated in small batches, and formal thermal stability and sensitivity testing will be conducted.
