  • Combustion chemistry of ternary blends of hydrogen and C 1 –C 4
           hydrocarbons at atmospheric pressure
    • Authors: D. A. Knyazkov; V. M. Shvartsberg; A. M. Dmitriev; K. N. Osipova; A. G. Shmakov; O. P. Korobeinichev; A. Burluka
      Pages: 491 - 499
      Abstract: Interest in the combustion chemistry of multifuel blends is motivated by the need to study the combustion of natural gas, which is known to be a mixture of alkanes. The present study performed using molecular beam mass spectrometry and numerical modeling has shown that the width of the zones of hydrogen and methane consumption in the H2/CH4/C3H8/O2/Ar flame and the width of the zones of methane and propane consumption in the CH4/C3H8/C4H10/O2/Ar flame differ significantly from each other. The causes of this phenomenon were determined by analyzing the modeling results. It has been found that in the presence of heavier compounds, lighter fuels, such as H2 and CH4, are formed, which reduces the total rate of their consumption and, hence expands the zone of their consumption in the flame. The influence of the presence of hydrogen in the fuel mixture on the concentration of C2 hydrocarbons has also been studied. It has been established that the addition of hydrogen reduces the maximum concentration of ethane, ethylene, and acetylene in the flame, and the fraction of unsaturated C2 hydrocarbons with respect to saturated ones also decreases.

  • Study on flame structures and emissions of CO and NO in Various CH 4 /O 2
           /N 2 –O 2 /N 2 counterflow premixed flames
    • Authors: J. Luo; L. Tian; L.-Sh. Liu; Z.-Zh. Cheng
      Pages: 500 - 509
      Abstract: An oxygen-diluted partially premixed/oxygen-enriched supplemental combustion (ODPP/OESC) counterflow flame is studied in this paper. Flame images are obtained through experiments and numerical simulations with the GRI-Mech 3.0 chemistry. The oxygen dilution effects are revealed by comparing the flame structures and emissions with those of a premixed flame and partially premixed flame (PPF) at the same equivalence ratio (ϕΣ = 0.95 and ϕ f = 1.4). The results show that both PPF and ODPP/OESC flames have distinct double flame structures; however, the location of the premixed combustion zone and the distance between premixed/nonpremixed combustion zone are significantly different for these two cases. For the ODPP/OESC flame, the temperature in the premixed combustion zone is lower and the premixed zone itself is located farther downstream from the fuel nozzle, which leads to reduction of NO and CO emissions, as compared to those of the PPF. Therefore, by adjusting the distribution of the oxygen concentration in the premixed and nonpremixed combustion zones, the ODPP/OESC can effectively balance the chemical reaction rate in the entire combustion zone and, consequently, reduce emissions.

  • Gas self-ignition in a plane vortex chamber
    • Authors: D. V. Voronin
      Pages: 510 - 516
      Abstract: This paper describes the numerical modeling of gas flow in a plane vortex chamber by using the Navier–Stokes equations. The model is based on the laws of conservation of mass, momentum, and energy for nonstationary two-dimensional compressible gas flow in the case of axial symmetry with a tangential component of the gas velocity. The processes of viscosity, thermal conductivity, and turbulence are accounted for. It is shown that the transition of the kinetic energy of gas into thermal energy as a result of transfer processes leads to the formation of hot spots in the boundary layers near the walls of the chamber. The gas temperature at these hot spots can exceed the gas combustion temperature, while the gas remains rather cold in the neighboring regions. This could be the reason for the cold gas self-ignition observed in the experiments. The turbulence of the flow and the processes of mixing and diffusion of the components make a significant contribution to the capacity of gas self-ignition.

  • Area Rules for the diffusion flame of a moving Bunsen burner corresponding
           to different temperature ranges
    • Authors: B. Lou; Y. Wang; X. F. Long; F. Tian
      Pages: 517 - 525
      Abstract: A high-speed camera system is used to observe the diffusion flame of a Bunsen burner in linear motion. The resultant sequence of instantaneous motion pictures of the flame accelerating at 3.60 m/s2 is processed and used to study the change in the flame area and specific floor area of the flame over different temperature ranges. The results indicate that the total flame area increases in the fuel control zone as the velocity increases over the range of experimental speeds employed (<0.90 m/s); then the total area quickly decreases in the transition region and is stable in the cross-flow wind control zone. As the velocity of the fire source increases, the low-temperature and specific floor areas adopt more dominant positions in the low-speed fuel control zone. In the high-speed cross-flow wind control zone, the area of the high-temperature zone and specific floor area take the dominant positions. The transformation between the two situations occurs in the transition zone. The cross-flow wind increases the high-temperature specific floor area of the fire compared to that of a stationary fire; the consumption in the moving fire also becomes correspondingly more concentrated and fierce.

  • Numerical and experimental study of fuel pre-injection in the inlet of a
           high-velocity air-breathing engine
    • Authors: V. A. Vinogradov; A. Yu. Makarov; I. V. Potekhina; V. V. Stepanov
      Pages: 526 - 537
      Abstract: The effect of preliminary injection (pre-injection) of a gas (heated air, methane, or ethylene) ahead of the entrance of a three-dimensional inlet in a supersonic flow with Mach numbers M∞ = 2–4, stagnation temperature T * = 300 K, and flow rates of the injected gas corresponding to 0–6% of the flow rate of air through the inlet is numerically studied. The gas is injected through orifices located behind the base surfaces of pylons mounted upstream of the inlet entrance. The computations are performed by the ESI-FASTRAN software package, which allows one to calculate three-dimensional viscous turbulent gas flows by a time-dependent method with the use of the Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations. Experimental investigations of pre-injection are performed with the use of small-scale and large-scale inlet models at M∞ = 3–4 and 6. A positive effect of pre-injection on stable (without stalling) deceleration of the incident flow in the case of mass supply and on initiation of ignition and stable combustion in the combustion chamber is confirmed.

  • Thermal explosion in closed systems: Criteria and critical conditions
    • Authors: V. Yu. Filimonov; K. B. Koshelev
      Pages: 538 - 547
      Abstract: A new criterion for thermal explosion in exothermically reacting systems for the case of arbitrary one-step conversions is proposed. The computation method is based on the analysis of the equation of maximum temperatures obtained for closed systems taking into account reactant consumption. The dependence of the maximum temperature on the Semenov and Todes parameters is bistable and the critical conditions are determined by the extremum conditions on the relevant parametric diagrams. The demarcation lines of ignition in the Todes criterion–Semenov criterion parametric plane are calculated for second-order exothermic reactions. Comparison of numerical and analytical calculations shows that they are in satisfactory agreement.

      Pages: 548 - 553
      Abstract: The mathematical model of thermal explosion and synthesis of products in a mechanically activated 3Ni + Al mixture is simulated in macroscopic approximation. It is shown that activation of original components significantly increases the formation rate of a Ni3Al intermetallide. The experimental data are used to determine the thermophysical and kinetic constants of the process.

  • Determination of the transfer coefficient of natural turbulence occurring
           near the solid-propellant gasification zone. I. Two-phase model of the
           gasification zone
    • Authors: K. O. Sabdenov; M. Erzada
      Pages: 554 - 564
      Abstract: A model for solid propellant gasification is proposed which contains a two-phase medium in an intermediate stage. The formation of the gas phase proceeds in two ways: chemical reactions result in gaseous products, which, in turn, initiate the formation of bubbles in which vapor forms from the liquid phase of the propellant. Gaseous products play an important role only in the very early stage of bubble development; their critical pressure is used to determine the minimum size of gas-phase nuclei. The bubble volume grows primarily by evaporation of the liquid phase. A kinetic equation for the bubble concentration and the necessary boundary conditions are formulated. Arguments are given suggesting that a temperature maximum cannot occur in the gasification zone and that natural turbulence can be generated by collapsing bubbles. The sound produced by solid propellant combustion is explained by the collapse of a huge number of microscopic bubbles. If the processes in the two-phase zone are neglected, the formulated system of equations is transformed into the Belyaev–Zel’dovich model equations.

    • Authors: L. V. Kuibida
      Pages: 565 - 568
      Abstract: Solid propellant combustion products at a pressure of 40 atm have been studied by molecular beam mass spectrometry. A facility with a four-stage molecular beam formation system has been designed. The possibility of quantifying the composition of the combustion products is shown using as an example a composite fuel based on ammonium dinitramide and polycaprolactone.

  • Calculation of pressure in a solid-propellant rocket motor with the use of
           a real dependence of the solid propellant burning rate on pressure
    • Authors: A. M. Lipanov
      Pages: 569 - 573
      Abstract: Five variants of calculating the burning rate of a solid propellant as a function of the pressure in a solid-propellant rocket motor are considered. Two variants of analytical expressions are proposed for approximating real dependences. In all variants, the pressure in the rocket motor can be presented by simple analytical expressions as a function of solid propellant parameters, charging conditions, and structural factors of the charge and motor.

      Abstract: The combustion and chemical transformation of highly exothermic MoO3/NiO/Al/C andMoO3/NiO/Al/B mixtures on the surface of a titanium substrate under centrifugal acceleration are studied. It is shown that chemical reactions occur not only in the combustion wave, but also on the surface of the titanium substrate, between the combustion products and the substrate material (titanium). The dynamics and mechanism of formation of layered (gradient) titanium–ceramics materials (Mo–Ni–C–Ti or Mo–Ni–B–Ti) is investigated.

  • Autowave chemical transformations of highly exothermic mixtures based on
           niobium oxide with aluminum
    • Authors: V. I. Yukhvid; D. E. Andreev; V. N. Sanin; N. V. Sachkova
      Pages: 580 - 584
      Abstract: Composite materials based on Nb with functional (Si, C, B) and alloying dopants (Hf, Ti, Al, etc.) are promising materials for aircraft engine applications. Our previous studies have shown that such composites can be synthesized in the autowave mode (combustion mode) using highly exothermic mixtures of Nb2O5 with Al, Si, Hf, and Ti. It has been found that in the combustion wave, Hf actively participates in the reduction of Nb2O5, which complicates its introduction into the composite material and leads to an excess of Al in the alloy. In the present study, we investigated the possibility of replacing Hf in the starting mixture by less active HfAl3 and also determined the effect of the grain size of HfAl3 on the Hf content in the composite material.

  • Exit of a heterogeneous detonation wave into a channel with linear
           expansion. I. Propagation regimes
    • Authors: A. V. Fedorov; T. A. Khmel’; S. A. Lavruk
      Pages: 585 - 595
      Abstract: Propagation of a plane detonation wave in a stoichiometric mixture of a gas and aluminum particles in a plane channel with a linear expansion section is studied by methods of numerical simulation. The slope of the wall is varied from 15 to 60°. The basic regimes of detonation propagation are analyzed: supercritical (without detonation failure), critical (with partial failure and re-initiation), and subcritical (with complete separation of the shock front and combustion front and with detonation failure). The detonation configuration formed in the expanding section can be a cellular structure with large differences in cell sizes at large angles of expansion or a close-to-uniform structure at the wall angle of 15°.

      Abstract: This paper reports the experimental and theoretical studies of the synthesis and behavior of a cocrystal energetic material 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene/1,3,5-trinitrobenzene (TNT/TNB). The performance tests show that this material is more powerful and less sensitive than TNT and TNB. A molecular dynamic simulation is conducted for the cocrystal TNT/TNB by using a COMPASS force field with an NPT ensemble. The density function theory is applied to investigate the band structure and the density of states for various pressures and temperatures. The results show that the TNT/TNB crystal is sensitive to pressures in the interval of 35–50 GPa, and the melting temperature of the crystal is around ≈320 K, which agrees well with experimental results. The Hirshfeld analysis is carried out to ascertain weak interactions and associated two-dimensional fingerprint plots. The crystal packing is demonstrated to be ensured by H· · · O, C· · · O, and O· · ·O contacts.

  • Simulation of spall fracture of uranium at different temperatures in the
           region of polymorphic phase transitions
    • Authors: M. A. Desyatnikova; O. N. Ignatova; V. A. Raevskii
      Pages: 605 - 610
      Abstract: This paper presents the results of numerical simulation of Zaretskii’s experiments on loading of natural uranium in the phase-transition region at temperatures of 27–862°C. Simulation of these experiments is of interest because of the observed features of spall fracture of uranium in the phase-transition region. Spall fracture and compaction was simulated using the DGC-L model of the dynamics of growth and compaction in a liquid medium, which takes into account the effect of strength properties, pressure, surface tension, viscosity, and inertial forces on the growth and collapse of pores. Calculations were carried out according to the UP program— a Lagrangian method for calculating deformation problems of continuum mechanics in a onedimensional approximation.

      Abstract: This paper describes the experimental study of dielectric relaxation in energy condensed systems based on ether urethane rubber plasticized by glycerin trinitrate and ammonium perchlorate, HMX, and aluminum powders in the frequency range of the electric field from 40 to 1.2 · 109 Hz. Depending on the field frequency, it was possible to determine relaxation processes caused by dipole polarization, the bulk electrical conductivity of a polymer binder, and the influence of the surface of aluminum particles.

      Abstract: A mathematical model, laboratory setup description, and results of a numericalexperimental study of specific features of an unsteady two-phase flow of the ethanol–air mixture in the duct of a resonance gas-dynamic system (RGS) are presented. The basic specific features of ignition of the fuel mixture in the resonance cavity are detected. The conditions of ignition are determined, and the ignition delay time of the fuel composition in the RGS is estimated. The data obtained in this study can be used for modeling physical and chemical processes and for choosing liquid fuel injection modes satisfying the conditions of ignition of two-phase fuel mixtures in the RGS.

      Pages: 433 - 443
      Abstract: Results of modeling the propagation of a shock wave formed by an explosion of a spherical charge of a high explosive in a semi-infinite space bounded by a flat substrate are reported. Problems of the action of such a wave on objects rigidly fixed on the substrate (a single prism and a set of prisms simulating an urban area) are considered. The computations are performed in a three-dimensional inviscid formulation with the use of the AUTODYN module of the ANSYS commercial software package. These numerical predictions are compared with experimental data on the static pressure measured by sensors mounted on the prism walls. It is demonstrated that an adequate description of the unsteady flow pattern formed around the obstacles mounted on the substrate can be provided. Based on these numerical data, the intensity of the shock wave action on various objects is estimated.

  • Detonation velocity of mechanically activated mixtures of ammonium
           perchlorate and aluminum
    • Authors: A. A. Shevchenko; A. Yu. Dolgoborodov; V. G. Kirilenko; M. A. Brazhnikov
      Pages: 461 - 470
      Abstract: The detonation properties of mechanically activated mixtures of ammonium perchlorate and aluminum were studied. The deflagration-to-detonation transition for low-density charges was investigated. Dependences of the detonation velocity of pressed charges with different types of aluminum on the activation time, density, and diameter of the charges were obtained. For compositions with nanosized aluminum, it is was found that the detonation velocity depends nonmonotonically on the inverse charge diameter and remains almost unchanged in a certain range of charge diameters. It is shown that the joint use of mechanical activation and nanosized components of the composite explosive significantly increases the detonability, reduces the critical diameter, and shifts the maximum of the detonation velocity as a function of density to higher charge densities.

      Abstract: This paper describes the problem of the behavior of a mixture of small graphite particles with water in the conditions of shock-wave action at a pressure of 32 GPa and a temperature of up to 1200–1600 K. Graphite particles at these pressures and temperatures are capable of transforming into cubic diamonds or at least into their hexagonal form that is lonsdaleite. It is shown that, for sufficiently small graphite particles of the order of 1 μm, their mixture with water for about 10 μs can heat up to the above-mentioned temperatures and undergo phase transformation, remain in those conditions for about 50 μs, and then efficiently cool down during the next 50 μs to the temperatures below 300 K, while remaining in the diamond phase.
