Abstract:

To understand the burning mechanism of composite solid propellants, a study was conducted on the structure formed during the burning of stoichiometric model mixtures containing the following oxidants ammonium perchlorate, which does not melt, but is self-inflammable at 360-380 C potassium perchlorate, which melts with decomposition at 610 C and sodium perchlorate, which melts at 482 C and decomposes at 505 C. The following fuels having different physiochemical properties were selected graphite, which does not melt and does not decompose tungsten, which melts at 3200 C naphthalene, which melts and sublimates at 80 C starch, which melts and decomposes at 260 C succinic and malonic acids succinic acid melts at 185 C and decomposes at 235 C malonic acid mells at 135.6 C.
