This presentation will be an overview of current research efforts underway at the Army Research Laboratory focusing on creation of a predictive, quantum mechanically informed, multiscale modeling and simulation capability for energetic and armor materials. The development and application of an atomistic model of the two component explosive formulation Composition A3 Type II, which consists of the cyclotrimethylene trinitramine (RDX) energetic and polyethylene plasticizer, will be described and efforts to experimentally validate the model will be discussed.
