Based on combustion mechanisms, the burning process may be simulated and analyzed by some specific softwares.

Ammonium perchlorate composite propellant – Wikipedia

For RMS, the APCP ” grains ” cylinders of propellant are loaded into the reusable motor casing along with a sequence of insulator disks and o-rings and a graphite or glass-filled phenolic resin nozzle. However, after 3 hours kneading, the mean value of combustion heat in Table 4 decreases with the kneading increase.

It differs from many traditional solid rocket propellants such as black powder or zinc-sulfurnot only in chemical composition and overall performance, but also by the nature of how it is processed. From Table 1as the kneading time increase, the mean values of decomposition temperature of samples decease smoothly from to.

The slope of this new curve is used to calculate the activation energy. The hydrogen chloride can easily dissolve in water and create corrosive hydrochloric acid.

Iha January 23rd In this simulation, the molar fractions of CO and CO 2 are not null initially, because given the system temperature, HTPB suffers an initial decomposition that should not be discarded, generating both carbon oxides.

The DSC curves show that the first stage is endothermic and the second stage is exothermic. However, the excellent catalysis of nanocatalyst still attracts many researchers to study [ 4 — 6 ].

The kinetic Shimadzu software, based on the Ozawa method, feed with the exothermic peak temperatures and the heating rate data, gives the Arrhenius kinetic parameters Ea, A relative to the thermal decomposition of composite and, consequently, with the eq.

And it provides new probabilities for reunion of nano-CuO catalyst particles. Therefore, the materials may suffer many different changes propellanta their structure or properties.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

First, nano-CuO was dispersed in ethanol by ultrasonic. As nanocatalysts likely perform much higher catalysis efficiency than microcatalysts, the dispersibility of nanocatalysts is much important than that of microcatalysts. And the thermal decomposition temperatures are much lower than the low decomposition temperature of blank sample. Although some of them emphasized the dispersibility improvement technologies of nanomaterials, little attention has been paid to the relationship between dispersibility and catalysis of nanomaterials.

The burn rate is heavily dependent on mean AP particle size as the AP absorbs heat to decompose into a gas before it can oxidize the fuel components. The composite propellant was produced in a batch process of 5 kg mass pilot plant using a planetary mixer under vacuum atmosphere during 2 hours.


This correlation can be used to determine the burning rate characteristics of a composite solid propellant with propeklants specific formulation.

The pre-exponential factor was found propeplants be 2. Then AP was mixed with the nano-CuO with the weight ratio of 4: The htppb one is the aging process. From the combustion data in Tables 3 and 4as the kneading time is increasing, the RSD of combustion heat is decreasing sharply.

This article includes a list of referencesbut its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations. November 11th Reviewed: The combustion mechanism of AP has been studied and modified.

Shin-Ming [ 22 ] showed that the presence of these catalysts compounds reduce the maximum decomposition reaction temperature in AP samples. Edited by Michael Schorr. Compared with the blank sample, thermal decomposition peaks of the two other samples with nano-CuO are combined together as one peak. Smaller AP and Al particles lead to higher combustion efficiency but also lead to increased linear burn rate.
