Burn Rate Studies on AN-Based Propellants: Effect of N-N Bonded Binders.
Keywords: Burn rate, AN-Based Propellants, N-N Bonded, ammonium perchlorate
AbstractNew epoxy resins having N-N bonds in their structures have been employed as binders for ammonium nitrate (AN)-based propellants. The resins have been characterized by various analytical techniques. The effect of the new binders on the burn rates of AN-based compositions including the metallized systems has been examined. The overall enhancement in the burn rate, as compared to that observed with conventional binders, has been explained in terms of the combustion reactivity of the N-N bondwiththe oxidizing speciesproduced duringcombustion. Furtherincreasein burn rate canbe achieved by inclusion of magnesium metal or ammonium perchlorate into these compositions.
