A chemically specific burning rate predictor model for energetic materials by Martin S Miller ( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 106 libraries worldwide
The application of complex networks of elementary chemical reactions to the gas phase of burning energetic materials has increased markedly over the last decade. The exquisite complexity of these gas-phase reaction networks, coupled with available high-rigor treatments of transport, is not matched by an equivalent level of sophistication in descriptions of the condensed-phase and interfacial phenomena. Owing to the bastly more complicated, many-body nature of the condensed phase, this condition is not likely to be relieved soon. In response to these difficulties, a new semi-empirical approach to burning-rate calculation has been developed and applied to frozen ozone, cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine (RDX), and nitroglycerine. The new approach hypothesizes a single overall reaction linking the unreacted material to the net products of condensed-phase decomposition and characterizes their rate of formation according to an empirically derived pyrolysis law. These condensed-phase products become the reactants for the gas phase, which are treated in full elementary-reaction detail. Using this new semi-emperical model, a methodology for computing the relative effects of several additives on the burning rate of nitroglycerine is developed and demonstrated. Hopefully this approach will enable more rapid progress in modeling multi-ingredient propellants than did previous approaches attempting to model the condensed-phase processes in detail.
Multispecies reacting flow model for the plasma efflux of an ETC igniter application to an open-air plasma jet impinging on an instrumented probe by Michael J Nusca ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 106 libraries worldwide
The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is investigating the electrothermal-chemical (ETC) gun concept. As part of this program, ARL has recently begun a comprehensive study on the interaction of the plasma efflux from an ETC igniter with solid propellant grains. The goal of this work is to elucidate the relevant physical, mechanical, and chemical mechanisms that underlie the observed ballistic effects in ETC guns that can lead to useful performance gains once an understanding of these mechanisms is achieved. This report describes the first phase of the modeling effort in support of this plasma-propellant interaction project. A time-accurate computational fluid dynamics code was used that included high-temperature thermodynamics, variable specific heats and transport properties (viscosity and thermal conductivity), and finite-rate (nonequilibrium) chemical kinetics. Validation of this code used a series of experiments with an ETC igniter fired into open air, generating an unsteady flowfield in which a measurement probe is placed. Computer simulations revealed important gas dynamic and chemical details of the plasma jet as it interacted with the probe and represented the first such detailed modeling of ETC plasma efflux.
A detailed, finite-rate, chemical kinetics mechanism for monomethylhydrazine-red fuming nitric acid systems ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 96 libraries worldwide
Between 2003 and 2005, a detailed, multistep, finite-rate chemical kinetics mechanism was developed to provide a basis for modeling monomethylhydrazine-red fuming nitric acid (MMH-RFNA) ignition and combustion chemistry. It was assembled almost entirely from reaction rate expressions and thermochemical data developed and validated for other combustion systems. When the mechanism's development was discontinued in 2005, it was composed of rate expressions for 513 reactions and involved 81 species. A lack of relevant experimental data limited the extent to which it could be validated as a whole. Nevertheless, when a subset of the mechanism was employed as a submodel for a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of an impinging stream vortex engine (ISVE) fueled with MMH-RFNA, the CFD model produced simulations whose calculations for chamber pressure and thrust well-reproduced ISVE test firing data. As such, the mechanism is considered to have a reasonable measure of validity and, thus, to be a good starting point for obtaining more refined MMH-RFNA mechanisms. This report discusses the mechanism's development and provides the rate expressions and thermochemical data that compose it. The sources of the rate expressions and thermochemical data are also provided.

The ice diaries the untold story of the USS Nautilus and the Cold War's most daring mission by William R Anderson ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
The Cold War was in full swing. The Soviet Union had just successfully launched Sputnik, and President Eisenhower badly wanted to redeem the reputation of the US as technologically superior. "Operation Sunshine" was the answer: under top-secret orders, the Captain and crew of one of the first nuclear submarines, the USS Nautilus, crossed under the North Pole and became the first naval vessel to forge all the way under the polar ice pack to emerge near the former Soviet Union. Readers will voyage along with Captain Anderson as he shares newly declassified stories of his sub's encounters with terrible storms, fire in the hold, collisions with ice, broken compasses, and more.
