Condensed combustion products from burning of nanoaluminum-based propellants: properties and formation mechanism
The experimental results obtained within a joint international research effort regarding the formation of condensed combustion products from nanoaluminum-based solid propellants (SPs) are reported. Data on the size, structure, chemical composition, and quantity of condensed combustion products (CCPs) as well as conditions of their formation are discussed. On the basis of the collected experimental data, a general physical picture of condensed combustion products formation is portrayed. The results of this study allow carrying out the analysis of good quality propellants using nanoaluminum.
