Abstract:

Data are presented on heat of combustion, critical particle size and rates of combustion of Mg Al mixtures with various sulfates and hydrated sulfates. Mixtures with compounds not decomposing at melting temperature burn at rates independent of pressure, with combustion apparently taking place mainly in the condensed phase. The other group, decomposing at or below melting temperature, burn more rapidly as pressure rises, with combustion apparently taking place mainly in the gas phase.
