INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE CALORIMETRIC DETERMINATION OF THE HEAT OF COMBUSTION OF A TERTIARY PYROTECHNIC COMPOSITION
NAVAL AMMUNITION DEPOT CRANE IN
Pagination or Media Count:
The calorimetric determination of the heat of combustion of a tertiary pyrotechnic composition - the thermite mixture - was studied. Results were obtained under three sets of conditions combustion of the thermite mixture in limited air, in argon gas, and in oxygen gas at a pressure of 20 atmospheres. Procedures and results are compared each with the others, and, when possible, with theoretically predicted values.
