Abstract: Engineering of novel energetic materials requires a thorough understanding of the phenomena that control chemistry, processing, structure, and performance over multiple length and time scales. While atomistic methods are typically limited in time and length scale, and continuum approaches tend to break down at microstructural scales, mesoscale modeling approaches are critical in bridging the gap between the modeling scales. This document serves as an overview of the current state-of-the-art mesoscale modeling software for energetic materials research that is available through commercial or general public licensing.
