Abstract
GENERAL SCIENCES, INCORPORATED (GSI) PROPOSES THE THERMOCHEMICAL AND KINETIC NALYSIS OF THE TI + B + H20 REACTION SYSTEM. THE HIGHLY EXOTHERMIC NATURE OF THE TITANIUM/BORON REACTION IN ITS GENERIC STATE AND IN COMBINATION WITH BINDERS AND OXIDIZERS HAS BEEN EXTENSIVELY INVESTIGATED BY GSI WITH SEVERAL FORMULATIONS UNDER PATENT FOR SPECIFIC DOD APPLICATIONS. THE PRESENT EFFORT IDENTIFIES METHODS AND TECHNIQUES TO PURSUE AN IN DEPTH INVESTIGATION OF THE TI/2B SYSTEM IN THE PRESENCE OF WATER. RATES AND MECHANISMS INVOLVED IN THE PARTICIPATION AND SYNERGISM OF THE H2O WILL BE IDENTIFIED AND IMPROVEMENTS IN THE EXOTHERMIC POTENTIAL OF THE SYSTEM WILL BE INVESTIGATED.
