Abstract:

The US Army is currently investigating the use of liquid propellants LPs in large and medium caliber guns. These LPs are characterized by the use of hydroxylammonium nitrate HAN as their oxidizer. On 30 August - 1 September 1988,the Fourth Annual LP Conference on HAN-Based Liquid Propellant Structure and Properties was held at the BRL. Some of the papers presented at this conference include the following Liquid Propellant Fail-Safe Program An Overview of The Thermal Reactivity of Substituted Ammonium Nitrates Impact Sensitivity of Han-Based Liquid Monopropellants Possible Test Methods to Study the Thermal Stability of Hydroxylammonium Nitrate Based Liquid Gun Propellants Hydrodynamic Theory of Liquid Propellant Dynamics Reaction Kinetics of Han Tean and Water Mixtures Using a Personal Computer Electrical Ignition of Han-Based Liquid Propellants The Burning Rate of Han-Based Liquid Propellants The Effects of Han Concentration on Burning Rates Physical Properties of Liquid Propellants Measurements of Shear Viscosity, Volume Viscosity and Density The Solubility of Gases Under Pressure in Liquid Propellants Compatibility of Elastomeric Materials with Han-Based Liquid Propellant 1846.
