Abstract:

The objective of this project was to acquire equipment and instrumentation for research and education on energetic materials that would enhance the University s capabilities in materials preparation, materials characterization, and combustion experiments. All requested equipment items have been purchased, received, and installed. They include a glovebox isolator Terra Universal Series 300, an acoustic mixer Resodyn LabRAM, a shaker mill SPEX SamplePrep 8000D, a differential scanning calorimeter Netzsch DSC 404 F1 Pegasus coupled with a quadrupole mass-spectrometer Netzsch QMS Aeolos, a laser flash apparatus Netzsch LFA 457 MicroFlash, an oxygen bomb calorimeter Parr 6220, a semimicro calorimeter Parr 6725, and a high-speed video camera Vision Research Phantom v1210. This acquisition has resulted in the establishment of a fully equipped laboratory for comprehensive studies of energetic materials, which will be used by the engineering faculty members for their current and future DoD grants. The laboratory provides a research environment that is relevant and comparable to todays government and industrial facilities. The equipment will enhance the academic experience for students and help prepare them for productive work in advanced areas of engineering important for the U.S. Department of Defense.
