Abstract:

The Air Force Rocket Propulsion Laboratory AFRPL, with assistance from URS Corporation, has conducted a limited program to determine the explosive potential of two hybrid propellant combinations nitrogen tetroxide N2O4 and polybutadyne-aluminum PBAN, and chlorine trifluoride CTF and PBAN. This program consisted of a series of eight tests in which the N2O4PBAN propellant combination was subjected to high-velocity-impact tests, drop tests, and explosive-donor tests, and one high-velocity-impact test of the CTFPBAN propellant combination.
