Chemical and Textural Characterization of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles and Their Effect on the Thermal Decomposition of Ammonium Perchlorate

19-Nov-2015 | Eunice Aparecida Campos, Maria Tereza Cortez Fernandes, Elizabete Yoshie Kawachi, José Irineu Sampaio de Oliveira, R ..., Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2015

Abstract Metal oxide nanoparticles have been used as burning rate catalysts for ammonium perchlorate (AP) decomposition in composite solid propellant. Though most papers point to the efficiency of different sizes, shapes and compositions, the texture of the agglomerated particles play an ...


Development of Polyurethane‐Based Solid Propellants Using Nanocomposite Materials

16-Nov-2015 | The late Abd El‐Shafey I. Ahmed, Amged A. Ali, Ahmed M. El‐Masry, Sayed M. Tawfik, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2015

Abstract Mechanically‐activated nanocomposites (MANCs) of nano‐aluminum (nAl)/X (X=Cu, Ni, Zn, Mg, and graphite) were used as replacements for reference nAl powder and as catalytic ingredients in polyurethane (PU) propellants. The effects of their use on combustion heat, burning rate, and ...


Review on Greener and Safer Synthesis of Nitro Compounds

09-Nov-2015 | Dilip M. Badgujar, Mahadev B. Talawar, Pramod P. Mahulikar, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2015

Abstract The review describes the recent developments in the green synthetic methods of nitro compounds involving environmentally benign approaches such as, use of solid‐supported reagents, microwave‐assisted reactions, ionic liquids, ultrasound assisted nitration reactions, gas phase ...


The Effect of RDX Crystal Defect Structure on Mechanical Response of a Polymer‐Bonded Explosive

09-Nov-2015 | Richard H. B. Bouma, Antoine E. D. M. van der Heijden, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2015

Abstract An explosive composition, derived from AFX‐757, was systematically varied by using three different qualities of Class I RDX. The effect of internal defect structure of the RDX crystal on the shock sensitivity of a polymer bonded explosive is generally accepted (Doherty and Watt, ...


Comparative Study of 9×19 mm Ammunition Combustion Products and Residues

09-Nov-2015 | Traian Rotariu, Răzvan Petre, Teodora Zecheru, Muhamed Suceska, Nicoleta Petrea, Sorin Eşanu, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2015

Abstract During the last decades, authorities’ awareness on environmental and human health impact at national and international level has increased in the field of small arms ammunition containing lead and antimony. Thus, the evolution of environmental policies regarding production and use of ...


Review on the Reactivity of 1,1‐Diamino‐2,2‐dinitroethylene (FOX‐7)

06-Nov-2015 | Yu Zhang, Qian Sun, Kangzhen Xu, Jirong Song, Fengqi Zhao, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2015

Abstract 1,1‐Diamino‐2,2‐dinitroethylene (FOX‐7) is a novel high‐energy insensitive material with good thermal stability and low sensitivity, and exhibits excellent application performance in the field of insensitive ammunitions and solid propellant. Although FOX‐7 is simple in molecular ...


CL‐20 Evaporative Crystallization under Reduced Pressure

06-Nov-2015 | Paweł Maksimowski, Paweł Tchórznicki, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2015

Abstract The effect of parameters of the CL‐20 crystallization process carried out by solvent removal by evaporation in vacuo on shape, polymorph type, crystal size, and on their shock sensitivity was studied. The CL‐20 crystallization process by this technique was shown to allow a precise ...


A Model for Explosive Reactive Armor Interaction with Shaped Charge Jet

06-Nov-2015 | Dejan Micković, Slobodan Jaramaz, Predrag Elek, Nenad Miloradović, Dragana Jaramaz, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2015

Abstract Study of interaction of explosive reactive armor (ERA) with shaped charge jet is the basis for evaluation of the effectiveness of ERA. The physically based theoretical model of this interaction is given. It is incorporated in the NERA computer code. The influences of backward moving ...


A New Method for Determining the Vapor Pressure of Nitroglycerine Above Solid Rocket Propellants

29-Oct-2015 | Ruth Tunnell, Dave Tod, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2015

Abstract Measuring the vapor pressure of compounds such as nitroglycerine (NG) which have a low volatility has not been a straightforward task in the past. There are a wide range of values in the literature for the vapor pressure of NG and furthermore, there is little information regarding the ...


Liquid Carbon Dioxide as Anti‐Solvent Coating Aluminum Hydride

16-Oct-2015 | Xing Wang Cai, Ji Hua Yang, Jing Lin Zhang, Do Xu Ma, Yan Ping Wang, Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics, 2015

Abstract This paper presents a novel surface coating to resolve the serviceability, stability, compatibility, and dehydrogenation of aluminum hydride (alane) using liquid carbon dioxide as an anti‐solvent, dispersant, drying medium, and inert atmosphere. The coated alane sample was ...
