Abstract

High energy density materials [HEDM] find wide ranging application in commercial and defense applications. The engineering design of these materials is represented by a hierarchy of specifications on materials and processes. The specifications range in scale from molecular by specifying polymorphic crystal structure to macroscopic specifying geometry and global density. These specifications are used to control the configuration of the production HEDM component in the system design. A formalism analogous to that used in statistical mechanics is presented to aid in the interpretation of physical variability of the design based on specification.
