Abstract:

"The two main objectives of the Phase II study are (1) todemonstrate the high propulsive performance of a family ofenergetic solid fuels and propellants developed in the Phase Iprogram and (2) to further refine their formulations includingnano-sized energetic particles for performance optimization underrocket motor test conditions. The formulations of energeticpropellants are based upon the propulsion performance and safetybehavior of these energetic materials. The characterization ofthe combustion and safety behavior will be conducted by the state-of-the-art techniques. Characterization of density impulses,combustion efficiencies, burning rates, temperaturesensitivities, burning stability parameters, activation energies,and ignition behavior of the selected solid propellants and fuelswill be conducted using modern diagnostic instruments and well-designed facilities. Commercialization of these propellants andenergetic solid fuels has been planned for various militaryapplications with government labs and several major industrialpropulsion companies. Collaboration with these industrialcompanies has also been established for broad commercialapplication of these new energetic materials. Arrangement ofenergetic material supply such as ultra-fine aluminum, boron, andboron carbide powders has been made through several vendors withspecial technology for energetic powders development.BENEFITS: There are numerous benefits from this propos
