Abstract
CURRENT FUEL-AIR EXPLOSIVE WARHEATS USE A LIQUID FUEL. LIQUIDS CHARACTERISTICALLY INTRODUCE HANDLING AND STORAGE HAZARDS AND HAVE A LOW ENERGY DENSITY. USE OF PRACTICAL SOLID FUELS COULD OVERCOME THOSE DEFICIENCIES. SOLID FUELS ARE PROPOSED THAT COULD MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF DISPERSION IN UNDER 20 MILLISEC AND FINAL PARTICLE SIZE UNDER 10 MICRONS BY DISPERSION AS VAPORIZED FUELS AND MOLTEN METAL DROPLETS. SPECIFIC SOLID FUEL COMPOSITION PROPOSED ARE CONSIDERE DPROPRIETARY INFORMATION AND ARE IDENTIFIED IN THE BODY OF THIS PROPOSAL.
