Abstract : A method is presented for calculating densities of solid or liquid fuels and explosives from additive molar volume atomic and structural increments. Selected examples of calculated densities are presented in tabular form; these agree with observed values with a mean error of less than + or - 5%. Structural parameters affecting density are presented. The scope and limitations of density calculations are discussed including structural features contributing to deviations from the additive scheme. (Author)
