  • Numerical investigation of the distribution of oxygen atoms in syngas
           combustion products
    • Authors: V. M. Shvartsberg; V. A. Bunev; V. S. Babkin
      Pages: 619 - 625
      Abstract: Abstract The distribution of air oxygen atoms in the oxidation products of rich mixtures of syngas with air in flame and the under autoignition conditions at constant volume has been investigated by numerical simulation using the tracer method. It has been found that in rich mixtures, the oxidation of hydrogen and carbon oxide has a stepwise nature, which is clearly visible in the profiles of the rates of production of H2O and CO2. The observed stepwise nature inevitably results in the heat-release rate occurring in steps. The reaction pathways and the role of the oxygen atom of the CO molecule in the heat release in these flames has been investigated.

  • Effect of catalytic combustion of hydrogen on the dehydration processes in
           a membrane reactor. III. calculation of the industrial reactor
    • Authors: E. V. Shelepova; A. A. Vedyagin; A. S. Noskov
      Pages: 626 - 633
      Abstract: Abstract This paper describes the mathematical simulation of an industrial membrane reactor for propane dehydrogenation in the thermodynamic coupling with hydrogen combustion (oxidation). Due to the effective removal of hydrogen through a membrane and the heat release as a result of an exothermic reaction, the temperature of the reaction stream at the input could be reduced to 500◦C. The fact that the process is carried out on an industrial-level membrane reactor makes it possible to reach a propane conversion of 75% with a propylene selectivity of 97%, which exceeds the figures obtained per pass in existing industrial devices at higher temperatures.

      Pages: 634 - 640
      Abstract: Abstract A method for performance optimization of a standard-flow hybrid rocket engine is considered. The method is based on inserting an additional amount of an oxidizer into a solid propellant with a prescribed distribution of the oxidizer mass fraction along the solid propellant charge. An analytical dependence is derived for the oxidizer fraction distribution that ensures uniform combustion and high efficiency of the solid propellant charge.

  • Determination of the transfer coefficients of natural turbulence occurring
           near the solid-propellant gasification zone. II. hydrodynamic instability
           in the presence of cross-flow
    • Authors: K. O. Sabdenov; M. Erzada
      Pages: 641 - 651
      Abstract: Abstract A solution is obtained to the problem of determining the conditions of hydrodynamic stability in the presence of flow of gaseous combustion products over the propellant gasification surface. The cross-flow has a small gradient along the direction of motion. Analysis of the obtained dispersion equation shows that hydrodynamic instability with oscillations develops. The transfer coefficients of natural turbulence are represented as the sum of two terms: the first is responsible for the transfer in the absence of cross-flow, and the second takes into account the enhancement of transport processes in the case of cross-flow. Their dependence on the initial temperature of solid propellant combustion predicts a reduction in the negative erosion effect in accordance with experimental data. Accounting for the relaxation time of the evaporation process has a stabilizing effect. In the limit of strong relaxation, this leads to oscillatory stability (in the absence of crossflow) where the perturbations neither grow nor decay. However, arbitrarily weak cross-flow leads to instability.

  • Effect of distributed injection of air into the afterburning chamber of a
           ram-rocket engine on the efficiency of combustion of boron particles
    • Authors: S. A. Rashkovskii; Yu. M. Milekhin; A. V. Fedorychev
      Pages: 652 - 664
      Abstract: Abstract A mathematical model of combustion of boron particles in a ram-rocket engine is developed. The boron combustion efficiency for one-stage and two-stage injection of air into the afterburning chamber is calculated. It is demonstrated that two-stage injection of air sometimes allows the time of complete combustion of boron particles to be significantly reduced (by a factor of 1.5–3); thus, the fuel combustion efficiency in the ram-rocket engine can be increased. The simulated results are consistent with available experimental data.

  • Combustion and autowave chemical transformations of a highly exothermic

    • Authors: P. A. Miloserdov; V. I. Yukhvid; V. A. Gorshkov; T. I. Ignat’eva; V. N. Semenova; A. S. Shchukin
      Pages: 665 - 668
      Abstract: Abstract The combustion of a highly exothermic mixture of calcium chromate with aluminum and boron has been studied. It has been shown that these mixtures are able to burn in a wide range of reactant ratios. The autowave chemical transformation is accompanied by decomposition of calcium chromate, the chemical reaction of the decomposition products with aluminum and boron, the formation of a two-phase melt of the combustion products with its subsequent gravity separation, and crystallization of the layers. The results of the study may be useful for obtaining chromium borides.

      Pages: 669 - 677
      Abstract: Abstract Self-propagating high-temperature synthesis in both the modes of both layer-by-layer combustion and dynamic thermal explosion was carried out using preliminary mechanical activation of B4C–Ti powder mixtures in a planetary ball mill. Preliminary mechanical activation conditions of reaction mixtures that provide a reduction in the reaction initiation temperature to 600 ± 20◦C were determined. The reaction products consist of mixtures of TiC and TiB2 with submicron grain size. The results of x-ray diffraction and electron microscopy studies of activated samples and reaction products are presented.

  • Experimental study of the suppression of flaming combustion and thermal
           decomposition of model ground and crown forest fires
    • Authors: R. S. Volkov; G. V. Kuznetsov; P. A. Strizhak
      Pages: 678 - 688
      Abstract: Abstract This paper presents an experimental study of heat and mass transfer and phase transformations in the suppression of flaming combustion and thermal decomposition of model ground, crown, and mixed forest fires due to local exposure to water. The experiments were carried out with typical combustible forest materials (mixture of leaves, needles, and twigs) and models of trunks and branches of trees. The conditions and characteristics of suppression of the flaming combustion and thermal decomposition of combustible forest materials were determined. It is shown that in the case of crown and mixed fires, local short-term (a few seconds) action of a liquid projectile does not suppress the thermal decomposition of the material (but can only lead to localization of flaming combustion). In the case of ground forest fires, this approach can be efficient with an appropriate choice of the water-irrigated area of the combustion zone and the rate and time of water spraying.

  • Shock wave distribution in an explosion of an explosive material with
           plastic filler
    • Authors: S. I. Gerasimov; A. L. Mikhailov; N. A. Trepalov
      Pages: 689 - 695
      Abstract: Abstract This paper describes the measurement results for the shock wave propagation during an explosion of an explosive material with plastic filler. The detection is carried out with the help of high-speed analog and digital video cameras. The air shock wave is visualized by means of shadow photography in transmitted light in the zone of separation from expanding explosion products and using a background oriented schlieren method in the far zone. The optical measurements of the air shock wave propagation are used to estimate a maximum pressure in the compression zone at different sections and compared with the data obtained by the pressure gauges. The calculated pressure peaks are in good agreement with the measured ones. The background oriented schlieren method proves to be a useful tool easily introduced in conventional large-scale polygon experiments.

  • Numerical study of dispersion of a rough dense layer of particles under
           the action of an expanding shock wave
    • Authors: T. A. Khmel’; A. V. Fedorov
      Pages: 696 - 704
      Abstract: Abstract Interaction of an expanding shock wave with a layer of particles having a rough surface is considered within the framework of the collisional model of a gas suspension. The influence of roughness on the shape of the contact boundaries in the gas phase and on the boundaries of the cloud of particles is analyzed. The development of the Richtmyer–Meshkov instability is demonstrated. Factors of particle dispersion are determined. Instability evolution is found to increase the amplitude of surface disturbances, and the development of collision dynamics favors smearing of finger-type structures. If the particle motion is essentially random, the pattern of cloud spreading is similar to that observed in experiments.

  • Mean detonation velocity in poorly mixed gas mixtures
    • Authors: E. S. Prokhorov
      Pages: 705 - 710
      Abstract: Abstract A method is proposed for calculating the mean velocity of the front of a plane detonation wave in a poorly mixed mixture of a gaseous hydrocarbon fuel and an oxidizer (oxygen or air). It is assumed that the chemical composition of the mixture exhibits periodic fluctuations in the detonation propagation direction, e.g., owing to gas charge stratification. The method is based on analyzing the functional dependence of the ideal (Chapman–Jouguet) detonation velocity on the molar fraction (normalized molar concentration) of the fuel. It is demonstrated that the mean detonation velocity can be appreciably (by 10–15%) smaller than the ideal detonation velocity. A dependence is found, which allows one to estimate the degree of mixing of the gas mixture on the basis of mean detonation velocity measurements.

  • Energy release in multifront detonation
    • Authors: A. A. Vasil’ev; V. A. Vasiliev
      Pages: 711 - 717
      Abstract: Abstract A method is proposed for determining the energy release in a combustible mixture, which is based on processing the trajectory of the expanding wave from the viewpoint of the strong explosion model. The wave trajectory in the case of critical initiation of multifront detonation in a combustible mixture is compared with the trajectory of a blast wave generated by the same initiator in an inert mixture whose gas-dynamic parameters are equivalent to those of the combustible mixture. The energy release is defined as the difference between the joint energy release of the initiator and combustible mixture in the case of critical initiation and the energy release of the initiator in the case of blast wave excitation in the inert mixture. Results of experimental validation of the method by an example of a stoichiometric acetylene–oxygen mixture are presented. Noticeable deviations of the experimental profile of energy release from available model concepts are observed.

      Pages: 718 - 723
      Abstract: Abstract Computer modeling is used within the framework of the theory of density functional to determine the physical and chemical properties of a set of energy materials, which correlate with detonation parameters and sensitivity factors. There are two models of prediction of detonation parameters and sensitivity factors formulated for molecules and explosive crystals that satisfactorily correlate with the experimental data.

  • Laser initiation of mixtures of PETN and aluminum by a deposit
    • Authors: V. I. Tarzhanov; V. I. Sdobnov; A. D. Zinchenko; A. I. Pogrebov; B. B. Tokarev
      Pages: 724 - 729
      Abstract: Abstract The formation of a deposit from mixtures of PETN with fine aluminum under the action of neodymium laser radiation in a free generation mode is studied. This paper also describes the efficiency of a deposit as a means to reduce the energy of laser initiation of mixtures as a function of fineness of PETN, aluminum content in initiated mixtures and deposit, mixture density, and diameter of the laser action region on the explosive. The compositions of mixtures for preparing deposits optimal in composition, which reduce the initiation energy of mixtures of PETN and aluminum down to 3.75 times, are determined. The functioning mechanism of a deposit during laser initiation of mixtures of PETN and aluminum is under discussion.

  • Detonation temperature of an emulsion explosive with a polymer sensitizer
    • Authors: S. A. Bordzilovskii; S. M. Karakhanov; A. V. Plastinin; S. I. Rafeichik; A. S. Yunoshev
      Pages: 730 - 737
      Abstract: Abstract Dependences of the brightness temperatures of the detonation front and detonation products on detonation pressure were determined in the range of 0.7–9.4 GPa by a pyrometric method. The pressure was varied by changing the initial density of the emulsion explosive in the range of 0.43–1.2 g/cm3. Polymer microballoons were used as sensitizer. The dependence of the brightness temperature in the Chapman–Jouguet plane on detonation pressure was found to be nonmonotonic. In the investigated pressure range, the measured temperature values varied from 2250 to 1830 K. A comparative analysis of the application of polymer and glass microballoons as sensitizers was performed. The obtained experimental data were compared with the calculation results available in the literature.

  • Detonation velocity of an emulsion explosive sensitized with polymer
           microballoons
    • Authors: A. S. Yunoshev; A. V. Plastinin; S. I. Rafeichik
      Pages: 738 - 743
      Abstract: Abstract This paper presents the results of investigation of the detonation velocity of an emulsion explosive sensitized with Expancel polymer microballoons in a wide range of initial density of 0.14–1.33 g/cm3. It is shown that at a density of the emulsion explosive less than 0.4 g/cm3, detonation with an unstable front characteristic of liquid explosives is possible.

  • Application and properties of nanometric HMX in PBX
    • Authors: J. Liu; G. Hao; Yu. Rong; L. Xiao; W. Jiang; F. Li; Ch. Jing; H. Gao; T. Chen; X. Ke
      Pages: 744 - 749
      Abstract: Abstract A nanometric HMX-based polymer-bonded explosive (PBX) is prepared by using the solution-water slurry technique. The resultant PBX is composed of 94% of HMX, 5% of fluororubber Viton, and 1% of wax. The properties of the nanometric HMX-based PBX, such as sensitivity and compressive performance, are comprehensively researched. The results show significant improvement for the nanometric HMX-based PBX as compared to the micron-sized HMX-based PBX. The friction sensitivity, impact sensitivity, and shock sensitivity of the nanometric HMX-based PBX are obviously lower by 30, 48, and 24%, respectively. Moreover, the compressive strength and strain of the nanometric HMX-based PBX are significantly higher by 273 and 33%, respectively. Thus, both the safety and mechanical resistibility of the PBX will significantly benefit from using nanometric HMX.

  • Gas self-ignition in a plane vortex chamber
    • Authors: D. V. Voronin
      Pages: 510 - 516
      Abstract: 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.

  • Simulation of thermal explosion in a pre-activated 3Ni + Al mixture
    • Authors: O. V. Lapshin; V. K. Smolyakov
      Pages: 548 - 553
      Abstract: 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.

  • 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: 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.
