Abstract:

The objective of the program was to provide basic information necessary for an overall improvement of chemical agent dissemination techniques. Studies were made of explosive generations of aerosols mechanics of explosive processes detonation, shock, and reaction processes ignition processes comminution processes thermal and pyrotechnic generation of aerosols thermal and pyrotechnic processes pyrolytic and oxidative degradation processes condensation processes ultrasonic, pneumatic, and atomization processes electrostatic phenomena associated with aerosol production the application of microencapsulation to aerosol generation and enhancement and natural aerosol generation. A critical summary of the program and recommendations for future work is first presented. This is followed by a discussion of accomplishments and recommendations for future research in each of the study areas listed above, with reference to program reports 22 Special Technical Reports and 13 Quarterly Progress Reports for details.
