Abstract
This Phase I SBIR program will investigate the ignition and combustion of engineered metal and nanocomposite particles in high pressure and heating rate conditions. Metallic and nanocomposite particles of Zr and Al and Zr-W and Al-W nanocomposite particles with various surface modifications and coatings will be tested for deflagration kinetics and combustion efficiency using standard and new techniques. In addition to shock tube and dust bomb kinetics, a ballistic compressor will be used to measure particle ignition and combustion under high pressure, high heating rate conditions similar to those encountered during blast, impact, and shock initiated deflagration events
