  2. EFFECTS OF SOLID-MECHANIC PROPERTIES OF ENERGETIC MATERIALS ON MUNITION SENSITIVITY

    SBC: Dyna East Corp.            Topic: N/A

    TRADITIONALLY, THE DETONATION HAS BEEN TREATED BY THE SHOCK THEORY, AND EXPLOSIVES AND PROPELLANTS HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED AS ENERGETIC FLUIDS. MANY SOLID PROPERTIES HAVE NOT BEEN MEASURED AND ARE NOT AVAILABLE FROM THE HANDBOOKS. RECENT RESULTS IN MUNITION SENSITIVITY STUDIES SHOW THAT SHEARING IS ONE OF THE MAIN MECHANISMS IN CAUSING DETONATION, AND IS CONTROLLED BY CERTAIN SOLID PROPERTIES. IN THE ...

  8. INVESTIGATION OF A SYSTEMS CONCEPT FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE SOLID LUBRI-CATED BEARINGS

    SBC: General Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    SOLID LUBRICATION OFFERS SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGES FOR ROLLING ELEMENT BEARINGS AND MACHINERY EXPOSED TO EXTREME CONDITIONS. A MAJOR CONSTRAINT IS THAT CURRENT DESIGNS FOR SUCH BEARINGS ARE BASED ON HYDRODYNAMIC LUBRICATION (OIL AND GREASE). THE CHALLENGE IS TO IDENTIFY A NEW CONCEPT THAT FOCUSES THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE EFFECTVE USE OF SOLIDS AND A METHODOLOGY FOR SOLID LUBRICANT-BEARING SYSTEM INTE ...
