Abstract : An experimental investigation of the vapor-phase combustion of aluminum and beryllium was undertaken using electrically vaporized wires as the source of hightemperature, high-pressure metal vapor. Specifically investigated were (1) the overall reaction rates for the conversion of metal vapor to condensed oxide; (2) the significant species which are present and may act as reaction intermediates; and (3) the detailed mechanism of the combustion including the nucleation and growth of condensed oxide particles.
