    BDNAZM belongs to monoclinic system with space group P21/n. The self-accelerating decomposition temperature, thermal ignition temperature, and critical temperature of thermal explosion are 141.06 °C, 154.15 °C and 160.62 °C, respectively. It has a low melting point (86.82 °C), and it has higher detonation velocity (7217 ms−1) and detonation pressure (22.0 GPa) than these of TNT.

    A piecewise thermokinetics method was employed to determine the most probable mechanism functions and kinetic parameters at the whole decomposition process of nitramine modified double-base propellant with high solid content. The theoretical result was consistent with the dynamic and isothermal DSC test.
