Atomistic molecular dynamics simulation was carried out to study interface interactions between a crystal structure and a plastic bonded explosive (PBX) system. In this work, the polymer is hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB), the plasticizer is dioctyl adipate (DOA) and the crystal phase is hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX). Experimental RDX crystallo-graphic data show that (
) and (
) crystal faces usually dominate, and these were therefore only these were studied. Interface models were built and interfacial bonding energies calculated to investigate HTPB/RDX adhesion properties in the (DOA+HTPB)/RDX system. Mechanical properties such as Poisson’s ratio, Young, bulk and shear moduli were also predicted. The most favourable interactions occur between HTPB-DOA and the RDX (020) crystal face: obtaining crystals with prominent (020) faces may provide a more flexible mixture, with a lower Young’s modulus and an increased ductility.
