Development of commercially useable codes to simulate aluminized propellant combustion, and related issues

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: UNIV. OF ILLINOIS
Principal Investigator: John Buckmaster, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: William Dick
Abstract:
We propose to examine the necessary ingredients for the development of marketable codes which will: model the morphology of heterogeneous propellants (a packing code); calculate the thermal and mechancial properties of such a morphology or pack; simulate the combustion of the pack; predict the… More

Development of commercially useable codes to simulate aluminized propellant combustion, and related issues

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: UNIV. OF ILLINOIS
Principal Investigator: John Buckmaster, Proprietor
Award Amount: $750,000.00
RI Contact: William Dick
Abstract:
We propose to develop marketable codes which will: model the morphology of heterogeneous propellants (a packing code); calculate the thermal and mechanical properties of such a morphology or pack; simulate the combustion of the pack; predict the statistics of aluminum agglomeration on the burning… More

Solid Propellant Shock to Detonation Modeling and Formulation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: University of Illinois
Principal Investigator: John Buckmaster, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $750,000.00
RI Contact: William Dick
Abstract:
Determining the hazard classification of new propellant formulations is important for transportation safety and storage concerns. To avoid costly grain redesign and additional testing, a model that adequately predicts the shock sensitivity, including the outcome of the Naval Ordnance Laboratory… More
