We used multiscale modeling to bridge the atomistic and microscale levels of description by coarse-graining hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-s-triazine (RDX) onto a single interaction site through forcematching, resulting in density-dependent potentials which span 0 to 10 GPa in bulk pressure. The resulting model reproduces several atomistic properties but cannot account for accurate energy exchange due to coarse-graining of the intramolecular degrees of freedom. To correct this, we account for momentum and energy transfer in mechanical shock treatments by utilizing constant energy dissipative particle dynamics (DPD-E). We present preliminary results for the parameterization of DPD-E for RDX via bulk simulations and mechanical shock loading, with results assessed by comparison to atomistic simulation.
