Abstract:

Experiments were performed to develop methodologies that will allow determination of pollutant emission factors for gases and particles produced by exploding metal-containing energetic materials. Materials studied included M855 ammunition nitrocelluloseH1NO23Oia nitroglycerin CiHi 30i, propellant, Cu-jacketed lead projectile fired using an M4 carbine shoulder-fired weapon medium-sized 660 grams charges of neat TNT trinitrotoluene, C1HsNJO6 and medium-sized 660 grams total weightcharges ofT 80 by weightMg magnesium powder, 325 mesh, 4 by weightB boron powder, 0.8 micrometer, 16 by weight. Although not included here, the analysis methods described will be directly applicable to the study of pyrotechnics.
