Boron-based Fuel-Rich Solid Rocket Propellant Technology is a professional book that systematically introduces the latest research progress for boron-based fuel rich solid propellants. It covers surface modifications, coating and agglomerating techniques, granulation, and characterization of amorphous boron powders, and its application to fuel-rich solid rocket propellants. Technologies for controlling the processing methods and combustion performance of fuel rich propellants are examined, and the book concludes with a summary of the research progress in boron- based fuel rich solid propellants, and a look forward to the foreseeable development trends of military applications.
