Abstract:

THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT ARE TO IDENTIFY CANDIDATE LIQUID GUN PROPELLANTS THAT CAN BE FORMULATED AND PREPARED AS STABLE EMULSIONS. VARIOUS FUELS COMBINED WITH HAN AS THE OXIDIZER AND AN EMULSIFYING AGENT WILL BE EXAMINED FOR STABILITY AND PERMANANCE. PHYSICAL PROPERTIES, IGNITION SENSITIVITY AND CLOSED CHAMBER BALLISTIC PERFORMANCE WILL BE EXPERIMENTALLY DETERMINED. THE EFFORT WILL BE CONDUCTED IN HREE PARTS, THE FIRST BEING A LITERATURE SURVEY OF PROPELLANTS AND EMULSIFYING AGENTS. IN THE SECOND PART OF THE STUDY, THE BLAKE CODE WILL BE UTILIZED TO DETERMINE THEORETICAL BALLISTIC PERFORMANCE. WORK COMPLETED BY PCRL INDICATES THAT AT LEAST ONE HYDROCARBON IS THEORETICALLY CAPABLE OF PERFORMANCE COMPARABLE TO LGP 1845 IN TERMS OF IMPETUS AND FLAM TEMPERATURE. THE THIRD PART OF THE STUDY WILL BE EXPERIMENTAL, DURING WHICH CANDIDATE EMULSIONS WILL BE PREPARED AND EVALUATED. CLOSED BOMB, COMPRESSION IGNITION SENSITIVITY, AND DROP WEIGHT TESTS WILL DETERMINE SOME THERMOCHEMICL PROPERTIES AND PROVIDE A PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF HAZARDOUSNESS.
