WILLER, Rodney L.. Calculation of the Density and Detonation Properties of C, H, N, O and F Compounds: Use in the Design and Synthesis of New Energetic Materials. J. Mex. Chem. Soc [online]. 2009, vol.53, n.3, pp.108-119. ISSN 1870-249X.
The estimation of the density and detonation properties of C, H, N, O, F explosives is discussed. A simple computer program, "Energy", first developed at the Naval Weapons Center-China Lake in the early 1980's is presented in an updated form. This program allows the rapid calculation of the estimated properties of both known and hypothetical energetic materials. A review of the use of this program in the synthesis of new energetic materials is given.
