Aluminium Nanoparticles Application: A propellant is a chemical substance used in production of energy and common propellant are energetic materials and consist of fuel used for jet fuel, rocket fuel and oxidizes. In rockets and aircraft, propellants are used to produce a gas that can be through a nozzle of rocket.

Aluminum Nanoparticles

Nano sized Aluminium Nanoparticles as one of the most attractable particles in propellants in discussed practically. Different size Aluminium Nanoparticles are employed produces composite rocket propellant. Due to its unique properties Aluminium Nanoparticles are applicable in a variety of application such as automobiles, aircrafts, heat shielding coating of aircraft, corrosion, military application { rocket fuel and coolant}. Aluminum Nanoparticles are also have high capacity hydrogen storage materials.

Energetic Materials

Energetic Materials have been widely used for military proposes. In explosives Aluminium Nanoparticles are used to reaction temperature and increase the bubble energies in under water weapons. Explosive that combination of Aluminum particles occurs behind the reactions front during the expansion of the gaseous detonation products. The Aluminum powders are known to react faster than aluminum in propellant and explosive. Aluminum nanoparticles are used as ingredients in solid rocket propellant formulations and explosives

Aluminium Nanoparticles Application: Increase Burning Rate

Aluminium Nanoparticles were examined and compared with the final goal to evaluate their application in solid rocket propulsion. The are Aluminium Nanoparticles the most common among the nanometric ingredients, the density and specifics impulse are improved but the coat increase and safety decreases. The use of Aluminium Nanoparticles could favor the development of new technology, such as cryogenic solid and water slurries in chemical rocket propulsion, colloidal in electrical propulsion.

Rocket propulsion indicate, for increasing Aluminium Nanoparticles mass fraction or decreasing anno aluminum size, large steady burning rates with essentially the same pressure sensitivity. The protective coating cause the content of metallic aluminum per unit weight to decrease this effect is stronger for smaller particles. Aluminium Nanoparticles size on ballistic properties of composite solid rocket propellants, including their flame structure.

Rocket Propellants

Modern solid rocket propellants for aerospace applications commonly contain aluminum powder as a fuel, because of is high energy release in the oxidation process to alumina.

Grate attention is focused today on ultra-fine(nanomatric) Aluminum particles, because of the significant increase of propellant burning rate and of the lower ignition time and temperature.

Aluminium Nanoparticles related to different preparation routes. Spherical shapes are obtained for high energetic preparation techniques (EEW, PC), otherwise irregular shapes and larger size are obtained(MM). The morphology of Aluminium Nanoparticles can be investigated and quantified by specific surface area measurements. Aircrafts application, fuel is used not only as a propellant but also as a coolant and improving both the thermal conductivity and combustion enthalpy of the fuel is beneficial in this application. These properties can be enhanced by dispersing Aluminium Nanoparticles into the fuel: however, the nanoparticles require stabilization from agglomeration and passivation from oxidation in order for these benefits to be realized in aircrafts application.

Increasing the mission capability of aircraft is a never ending objective for the military. Critical to achieving this objective is improving the thermal performance and energy density of the fuel aboard the aircraft, which is used as both a propellant and coolant. Thus improving the thermal conductivity and energy density of the fuel is one way to reach this objective.

Reduced sensitivity

The friction sensitivity of the propellants increases by using small size Aluminium Nanoparticles. The impact sensitivity, small influences of the average diameter of the aluminum powders may be recognized. The thermochemical calculation have shown that propellants coating unaged micrometric Aluminium Nanoparticles show an increase in the ballistic performance result by adding more metal inside the mixture because this powder has a high Al content and the increases are higher than for propellant containing only Aluminium Nanoparticles

The mixture of nano and Aluminium Nanoparticles and the propellants containing only nano Aluminum the trend is opposite. Increasing the specific surface of the powders the propellants reach higher strength. The propellants coating Aluminium Nanoparticles have a high dispersion level of the Aluminium Nanoparticles. The friction sensitivity of the propellants increases by using small particles size Aluminium Nanoparticles.
