Abstract : Measurements of the thermal conductivity and thermal difficulty of RDX (cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine) over the ambient temperature range -20 deg to +50 deg C are reported using a recently developed transient technique for small specimens of energetic material. These data are obtained from 95% of TMD, pressed-powder specimens. Both the thermal conductivity and derived values of the specific heat are in good agreement with previous measurements made at somewhat higher temperatures.
