Propellant Formulation Development for Future Army Weapons Systems By Means of Advanced Modeling and Flame Kinetics Research

We apply our experimental and modeling results of a number of burner-stabilized flames relevant to the combustion of solid propellants to calculate the burning rates of tri-amino-guanidinium-azotetrazolate TAGzT with and without a nitrate ester-based propellant using our CYCLOPS combustion model that we developed at US Army Research Laboratory. The model employs a detailed, chemical reaction mechanism containing 59 species and 368 reactions. Our calculations show that TAGzT enhances the burning rate of the base propellant over a range of pressures used for rockets and guns a factor of three at 10 MPa.
