Abstract
IllinoisRocstar LLC envisions the initial product of this effort to be a shock-to-detonation module (Rocpack-RocSDT) for inclusion in our insensitive munitions simulation code, IMSIM. IMSIM is a first-generation software product for the simulation of energetic material behavior in insensitive munitions-related studies and applications. The overall IMSIM process initiates with nondestructive characterization of the as-cast energetic materials, then moves to statistical characterization of the experimental energetic, and concludes with a prediction of thermo-chemo-mechanical properties of interest for insensitive munitions applications. Analytical and consulting services will be available based on IMSIM at the end of Phase II. We envision capabilities to include prediction of the micromechanical properties of energetic materials in a variety of forms. Markets other than energetic materials property prediction are likely as well. These services are demanded by the DoD components, DOE, transportation companies, Homeland Security, and others involved in modeling the response of energetic materials.
