Molecular dynamic simulations for FOX-7 and FOX-7 based PBXs

Molecular dynamic simulations for FOX-7 and FOX-7 based PBXs Molecular dynamic (MD) simulations were applied to investigate the binding energies and mechanical properties of 1,1-diamino-2,2-dinitroethene (FOX-7) based polymer bonded explosives (PBXs) with ethylenevinylacetate copolymer (EVA), fluorine (F2641), hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB), and styrene butadiene styrene block copolymer (SBS). The binding energies between FOX-7 and the four polymer binders are different, of which the descending order is FOX-7/HTPB ≈ FOX-7/SBS > FOX-7/EVA > FOX-7/F2641. Furthermore, the (002) surface of FOX-7 has the strongest interaction with the four polymers. The mechanical properties (elastic moduli and Poisson’s ratio) of pure FOX-7 and FOX-7 based PBXs were obtained. The results show that the descending order of the ability of polymer binders to improve plasticity of PBXs is SBS > F2641 > EVA > HTPB. The formability of FOX-7 based PBXs is better than that of pure FOX-7, as the order of FOX-7/SBS > FOX-7/EVA > FOX-7/F2641 > FOX-7/HTPB > FOX-7 shows. Poisson’s ratio of SBS is the highest. The calculated detonation performances for pure FOX-7 and FOX-7 based PBXs show that the detonation properties of explosives slightly decreases when the mass ratio of binder is about 5%. All the theoretical detonation velocities of FOX-7 based PBXs are higher than 8500 m/s. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Molecular Modeling Springer Journals

Abstract

Molecular dynamic (MD) simulations were applied to investigate the binding energies and mechanical properties of 1,1-diamino-2,2-dinitroethene (FOX-7) based polymer bonded explosives (PBXs) with ethylenevinylacetate copolymer (EVA), fluorine (F2641), hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB), and styrene butadiene styrene block copolymer (SBS). The binding energies between FOX-7 and the four polymer binders are different, of which the descending order is FOX-7/HTPB ≈ FOX-7/SBS > FOX-7/EVA > FOX-7/F2641. Furthermore, the (002) surface of FOX-7 has the strongest interaction with the four polymers. The mechanical properties (elastic moduli and Poisson’s ratio) of pure FOX-7 and FOX-7 based PBXs were obtained. The results show that the descending order of the ability of polymer binders to improve plasticity of PBXs is SBS > F2641 > EVA > HTPB. The formability of FOX-7 based PBXs is better than that of pure FOX-7, as the order of FOX-7/SBS > FOX-7/EVA > FOX-7/F2641 > FOX-7/HTPB > FOX-7 shows. Poisson’s ratio of SBS is the highest. The calculated detonation performances for pure FOX-7 and FOX-7 based PBXs show that the detonation properties of explosives slightly decreases when the mass ratio of binder is about 5%. All the theoretical detonation velocities of FOX-7 based PBXs are higher than 8500 m/s.
