  • Rayleigh–Benard convection in a chemically active gas in the
           chemical equilibrium state
    • Authors: I. B. Palymskiy; V. I. Palymskiy; P. A. Fomin
      Pages: 123 - 133
      Abstract: The Rayleigh–Benard convection in a chemically active gas in the chemical equilibrium state is numerically studied in the Boussinesq approximation. A flat layer with isothermal horizontal boundaries free from shear stresses is considered. Thermodynamic parameters of the gas (hydrogen–oxygen mixture) are calculated by the previously proposed model of chemical equilibrium. It is shown that the allowance for recombination and dissociation processes leads to the emergence of an additional factor at the Rayleigh number. An expression for the growth rate of infinitesimal perturbations and a relation for the critical Rayleigh number as a function of temperature are derived. It is found that the neutral curves consist of the upper (instability due to heating from below) and lower (instability due to heating from above) branches. Results calculated for a nonlinear steady mode are reported.

  • Influence of natural convection on the heat explosion in porous media
    • Authors: K. Allali; Y. Joundy; A. Taik; V. Volpert
      Pages: 134 - 139
      Abstract: The interaction between natural convection and the heat explosion in porous media is studied. The model consists of a nonlinear heat equation coupled with the Darcy equation for the motion of an incompressible fluid in a porous medium. Numerical simulations are performed using the alternate direction finite difference method and the fast Fourier transform method. A complex behavior of solutions is observed, including periodic and aperiodic oscillations and an oscillating heat explosion. It is shown that convection can decrease the risk of the explosion due to additional mixing and heat loss, but it can also facilitate the explosion due to temperature oscillations arising as a result of instability of stationary convective regimes.

  • Investigation of soot nanoparticles during combustion of liquid
           hydrocarbons with injection of a superheated steam jet into the reaction
    • Authors: I. S. Anufriev; A. M. Baklanov; O. V. Borovkova; M. S. Vigriyanov; V. V. Leshchevich; O. V. Sharypov
      Pages: 140 - 148
      Abstract: The characteristics of soot particles formed during combustion of liquid hydrocarbons in a laboratory model of an original burner with injection of a superheated steam jet into the reaction zone are experimentally studied. The concentration and size distribution of soot particles formed in the burner flame are measured by a diffusion aerosol spectrometer. It is shown that the majority of the primary particles have sizes ranging from 20 to 60 nm. The particle concentration in the external flame rapidly decreases with distance from the burner exit from 108 to 5 · 106 cm−3. The images obtained by transmission electron microscopy demonstrate a chain-branched (fractallike) structure of aggregates. The primary particles composing these aggregates have a union-like structure with the interplane distance between the layers smaller than 1 nm. Compact aggregates with sizes up to 500 nm are observed in cooled combustion products. The content of soot in combustion products is 35 mg/m3, and the mean particle mass is 7 · 10−12 mg. Results obtained in the combustion modes with injection of a superheated steam jet and with injection of an air jet are compared.

  • Exhaustion of a silane jet into a space
    • Authors: A. V. Fedorov; Yu. V. Zakharova
      Pages: 149 - 156
      Abstract: Issues of explosion and fire safety of silane during its transportation and storage are intimately related to its possible catastrophic leak off from tanks if they become cracked. It turned out that silane self-ignition is possible at some leak off velocities. The interest of the aerospace industry to problems of ignition and combustion of silane combined with other fuels should be also noted. Experimental investigations of such problems, which are rather expensive and laborconsuming, provide primary information for the development and verification of mathematical models of physical and chemical processes, capable of predicting the characteristics of silane mixing, ignition, and combustion induced by its exhaustion. Recent experiments of Prof. Chen and his colleagues from Taiwan allowed them to determine the critical length of the silane jet (distance from the tube exit where ignition of exhausting silane occurred) and the time of silane ignition. In the present work, an attempt is made to simulate these phenomena within the framework of the concept of the critical concentration of silane with studying the dynamics of silane leak off from a tube.

  • Measurement of thermal electromotive force and determination of combustion
           parameters of a mixture of 5Ti + 3Si under quasi-isostatic compression
    • Authors: V. A. Shcherbakov; V. Yu. Barinov
      Pages: 157 - 164
      Abstract: This paper presents experimental dependences of the temperature, thermal electromotive force, velocity, and width of the combustion wave of a heterogeneous mixture of 5Ti + 3Si on the quasi-isostatic compression pressure. Combustion parameters are calculated from the results of measurements of the temperature gradient and the electrical potential difference in the combustion wave. It is shown that under quasi-isostatic compression conditions, the maximum burning rate is 90 mm/s and the width of the combustion wave is 10 mm. It is found that the voltage–temperature characteristic of combustion of a heterogeneous mixture of 5Ti + 3Si has a hysteresis shape. The cause of the hysteresis related to a change in the bulk concentration of electric charge carriers in the combustion wave is discussed.

  • Ignition of titanium during fracture in oxygen
    • Authors: B. I. Bolobov
      Pages: 165 - 170
      Abstract: This work demonstrates that the heating of fracture fragments of rods made of VT1-0 commercial titanium and its alloys OT4-1 and PT3V in gaseous oxygen at a pressure pO2, which is accepted in this paper and in the works of other researchers as critical pressure p*, only leads to melting of individual regions of the formed juvenile surface, which differ from each other only by obstructed heat sink, while the metal–oxygen interaction does not transfer into combustion. However, this interaction does transfer into combustion during which the bulk of the metal burns out at a slightly higher pressure p**, which can be calculated from the thermal explosion equation for temperature T* that is equal to the melting point of titanium, with account for the dissociative absorption of oxygen molecules on the melt surface and the heat exchange coefficient corresponding to the case where the heat is transferred from the melt hemisphere to the semibounded solid body.

  • Ignition and phase formation in the Zr–Al–C system
    • Authors: S. G. Vadchenko; D. Yu. Kovalev; M. A. Luginina
      Pages: 171 - 175
      Abstract: The ignition mechanism and the dependence of the composition of the products of combustion or thermal explosion in a mixture of 2Zr + Al + C on the initiation temperature and heat transfer conditions were studied. Heat transfer conditions were changed by varying the size of the samples and the gaseous medium in which the experiments were performed. Two contusion regimes were found: a low-temperature regime, in which zirconium aluminides formed and carbon and part of the zirconium remained unreacted, and a high-temperature regime in which the reaction products were zirconium carbide and aluminide. Upon re-initiation, the low-temperature combustion products reacted in the high-temperature combustion regime. The observed dependences are due to parallel reactions in the three-component system.

  • Numerical study of the effect of burnout on the ignition characteristics
           of polymer under local heating
    • Authors: D. O. Glushkov; G. V. Kuznetsov; P. A. Strizhak
      Pages: 176 - 186
      Abstract: This paper presents the results of a numerical study of the effect of burnout on the ignition delay of a typical thermoplastic polymer (polymethylmethacrylate) by a metal particle heated to a high temperature. The initial temperature of the energy source was varied from 960–1150 K. Three ignition modes of the polymer can be distinguished according to the temperature of the heat source, ignition delay, and the position of the ignition zone in the vicinity of the hot particle. It is found that under local heating conditions, the burnout of the heated region of the near-surface layer of the polymer has an insignificant effect (less than 5%) the increase in the basic characteristic of the process—the ignition delay. At the time of initiation of combustion, the degree of thermal decomposition of the polymer (degree of conversion) does not reach even 15% in the section corresponding to the maximum heat flux from the heat source. It is shown that the ignition delay increases more significantly when accounting for the temperature dependence of the thermal properties of polymethylmethacrylate than when accounting for the burnout factor. The induction period is increased by 15–25% due to an increase in the accumulating capacity of the polymer and heat transfer rate from the heated region of the near-surface layer into the depth of the material.

  • Scaling factor in continuous spin detonation of syngas–air mixtures
    • Authors: F. A. Bykovskii; S. A. Zhdan; E. F. Vedernikov; A. N. Samsonov
      Pages: 187 - 198
      Abstract: Multiwave regimes of continuous spin detonation in syngas–air mixtures in a flow-type annular cylindrical combustor 503 mm in diameter are obtained. Experiments are performed for mixtures of carbon oxide and hydrogen with the ratio of the components equal to 1/3, 1/2, or 1/1. The varied parameters are the flow rates of air and syngas, the ratio of these flow rates, and the combustor length. Scalability of the continuous spin detonation process is demonstrated: at identical values of the specific flow rate of air and the combustor expansion ratio, the number of transverse detonation waves increases with increasing combustor diameter. In the examined ranges of combustor lengths and specific flow rates of air, the frequency of these waves is independent of the combustor length, except for narrow regions where the number of waves (and, correspondingly, the flow regime) changes. The structures of transverse detonation waves in regular regimes are almost identical for all examined syngas compositions. It is shown that detonation can be initiated by a jet of combustion products. The minimum diameters of the detonation chamber for different flow rates of the mixture are estimated.

  • Structure of detonation waves in PETN
    • Authors: A. V. Utkin; V. M. Mochalova; A. I. Rogacheva; V. V. Yakushev
      Pages: 199 - 204
      Abstract: A VISAR technique was used to study the structure of the reaction zone in PETN for various initial densities and dispersion of samples. The flow in the pressed charges corresponds to the classical denotation model. In the case of bulk density, the peculiarities corresponding to an explosive combustion model are recorded. In the vicinity of the initial density of 1.7 g/cm3, a kink is found on the curve showing detonation velocity versus density, and the shock-wave initiation of PETN above and below the kink point is studied.

  • Influence of artificial pores on the detonation parameters of an emulsion
    • Authors: A. S. Yunoshev; V. V. Sil’vestrov; A. V. Plastinin; S. I. Rafeichik
      Pages: 205 - 210
      Abstract: This paper presents the results of a study of the influence of the characteristics of porous inclusions on the detonation parameters of emulsion explosives (EMX). Glass and polymeric microballoons, perlite grains, hollow cenospheres, and a gas-generating additive are used as sensitizers. It is shown that polymeric microballoons with an ultra-thin wall filled with isobutane are the most efficient sensitizer that allows the potential of EMX to be fully realized.

  • Simulation of the ignition of organic explosives by a laser pulse in the
           weak absorption region
    • Authors: V. A. Dolgachev; E. V. Duginov; A. V. Khaneft
      Pages: 211 - 218
      Abstract: Numerical simulation of the ignition of RDX, HMX, and TATB by a nanosecond laser pulse was performed. The heat-conduction equation was solved in cylindrical coordinates with allowance for the multiple reflection of the light beam, a zero-order exothermic reaction, and melting. Despite the small temperature gradient due to the smallness of the radiation absorption coefficient, violation of thermal equilibrium due to Arrhenius nonlinearity leads to ignition of energetic materials from the surface. The critical energy density for ignition of PETN, RDX, HMX, and TATB by a nanosecond laser pulse was determined. Calculations have shown that with identical absorption and reflection coefficients, PETN is the most sensitive and TATB is the most heat-resistant.

      Abstract: This paper describes the micro-hotspot model of laser initiation of energy materials. The relationship of the critical energy density and the temperature of the reaction hotspot in PETN with the nanoparticle radii of 12 metals at a pulse duration at half-height of 14 ns is determined. It is established that, as the nanoparticle radius is about 10 nm, the critical energy density tends to a certain value independent of heat capacity of metal. This is due to the reduction of the ratio of the nanoparticle volume to the volume of the heated PETN layer, which leads to the fact that most of the energy is spent on heating the matrix. It is shown that the critical hotspot temperature depends on both pulse duration and nanoparticle radius. The analytical expressions for the relationships of the critical parameters of reaction initiation with the radius and heat capacity of metal nanoparticles and for the relationship of the critical hotspot temperature with pulse duration are obtained. The invariant binding the critical energy density and the characteristic development time of the reaction is discovered. The results of this paper are necessary for the optimization of the composition of the optical detonator cell.

  • Laser initiation of low-density mixtures of PETN with metal additives

      Pages: 229 - 235
      Abstract: This paper presents data on laser initiation of low-density mixtures of PETN with metal additives with varying dispersity of PETN and particle size of the additive. A laser with a wavelength of 1.06 μm and a pulse length of 40 and 30 ns was used. Curves of the threshold initiation parameters on the additive content are shown to have minima. For coarse additives, no significant dependence of the initiation threshold of the mixtures on the nature of the metal at its optimal content (except for aluminum) was observed. For PETN mixtures with an optimal amount of fine aluminum, a significantly greater (a factor of 6.2) decrease in the threshold initiation parameters compared to direct initiation of PETN was found. It is shown that the initiation thresholds of the mixtures do not depend on the dispersity of PETN with the optimal additive content. Increasing the dispersity of PETN extends the dependences of the threshold parameters on the additive content while the optimal additive content is shifted to higher values. The initiation thresholds are found to strongly depend on the density of the mixture charge. The key points of the mechanism of laser initiation of PETN mixtures with additives are formulated.

  • Effect of preliminary mechanical damage and porosity of explosive on the
           initiation conditions and explosion parameters in low-velocity impact

      Pages: 236 - 241
      Abstract: This paper presents the results of experimental studies of the effect of the damage and initial porosity of desensitized HMX samples on the limiting initiation conditions and explosion parameters under impact of steel spherical projectiles weighing 2–100 g. It is shown that preliminary mechanical damage to explosive samples and reducing their initial density lead to qualitatively the same result—an increase in the limiting impactor velocity initiating explosive transformation. Data are obtained on the damage structure of the samples in the absence of initiation and on the dependence of the physicomechanical properties of samples on their density.

  • Dispersion of metals under shock-wave loading by relativistic electron
           pulses and impactors accelerated by electric explosion

      Abstract: Depending on the geometry and amplitude–time characteristics of external impact, there may be accumulation of shock-wave energy in the samples, which reduces the time during which the structural materials retain their functional properties. Dispersion from the free metal surface of samples without and with pre-applied perturbations in the form of pyramids is considered. Under certain amplitude–time characteristics of external impact, dispersion from the tips of the pyramids occurs. The quantitative characteristics of dynamic destructive processes at different amplitude–time characteristics of external impact are determined for the purpose of introducing them into two- and three-dimensional codes to predict the behavior of metals under extreme conditions.

  • Some features of the dielectric relaxation of nitroglycerin
    • Authors: D. N. Sadovnichii; Yu. M. Milekhin; S. A. Malinin; I. D. Voropaev
      Pages: 49 - 54
      Abstract: This paper presents the results of an experimental study of the dielectric relaxation of nitroglycerin in the temperature range of the liquid–solid phase transition. Measurements were performed in the electric field frequency range of 1–1264 MHz. It is shown that the dielectric relaxation of nitroglycerin includes at least two relaxation process. Possible factors that determine the temperature and frequency dependences of the complex dielectric permittivity of nitroglycerin are discussed.

  • Instability of detonation waves in FEFO/methanol solutions
    • Authors: A. V. Utkin; V. M. Mochalova; S. I. Torunov; S. A. Koldunov
      Pages: 74 - 81
      Abstract: A VISAR interferometer and a high-speed streak camera are used to study the structure of detonation waves in bis-(2-fluoro-2,2-dinitroethyl)-formal (FEFO) mixtures with methanol, whose mass concentration varied in the range of 0–35%. It is shown that the two types of instability existing in liquid explosives, which are the one-dimensional instability of the detonation front and the reaction failure wave instability on the edge of the charge, can be implemented in any combination. The reaction time of the studied mixtures is determined, and the different character of the dependence of the critical diameter of detonation and the reaction time on the diluent concentration is demonstrated.

  • Mechanics of penetration of ceramic targets
    • Authors: I. F. Kobylkin
      Pages: 110 - 115
      Abstract: A model for the penetration of a ceramic target with the formation of an expanding conical hole is proposed that can be used to determine the apex angle of the cone knocked out from the target. The main cause of this fracture of ceramic targets is that the tensile strength of a ceramic material is much lower than its compressive strength. A method for calculating the maximum penetration velocity in a ceramic target without substrate was developed using the energy fracture criterion for ceramics. Two-dimensional numerical simulation of the impact of a steel projectile on a corundum plate showed satisfactory agreement between the calculated and experimental configurations of the resulting conical crack provided that the ratio between the compressive and tensile strengths corresponds to the recommendations of the developed model.

  • Experimental and numerical study of the impact interaction of a rigid
           impactor with a combined target
    • Authors: V. V. Balandin; A. M. Bragov; S. V. Zefirov; A. K. Lomunov
      Pages: 116 - 121
      Abstract: This paper describes the experimental and numerical study of structures used for protection against the harmful effect of bullet and fission elements. A special place among them is taken by spaced-apart structures in which a gap between layers is filled with either air or various light materials with good damping, dissipative, and thermophysical properties. The results of the numerical simulation of a fragment of spaced-apart protection are in good agreement with experimental data on both residual forms and deflection.
