Abstract: Using a series of scripts developed by the US Army Research Laboratory, written to dramatically simplify the computation of crystalline density and heat of formation, the performance properties for the 3,7-dinitro-[1,2,4]triazolo[5,1-c][1,2,4]triazin-4 -amine notional energetic material were evaluated. Additionally, a qualitative estimation of the impact sensitivity has been calculated. This report outlines the procedures used to generate this information, as well as Cheetah calculations using the predicted crystalline density and heat of formation.
