Abstract : United Technology Center is conducting a research program to investigate the effect of formulation variables on the combustion behavior of light metal hydrides. The present investigation is intended to provide a fundamental understanding of the mechanism of combustion under conditions as nearly free of formulation limitations as possible. Design work and procurement of hardware have been completed and a four-phase program is in progress, as follows: Phase I. Construction of apparatus. Hardware procurement is complete and final assembly is in progress; Phases II and III. Investigation of combustion mechanisms of two light metal hydrides to be conducted concurrently upon completion of Phase I. Phase IV. Development of a mathematical model. This phase is being conducted concurrently with the other phases. (Author)
