Description

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.

About the Editor

Pang WeiQiang is a Dr. Professor and Visiting Scholar at the Politecnico di Milano; he has been responsible for several national projects in recent years. He has received honors, such as the third rank of the China North Industries Group Corporation, Xi’an Modern Chemistry Research Institute. (2013); and the the first rank of China North Industries Group Corporation, Xi’an Modern Chemistry Research Institute. (2012). For years his scientific activity has mainly been devoted to fundamental combustions of energetic materials, from both theoretical and experimental viewpoints. Dr. Pang has given specific attention to the following research areas: high energetic materials and their application in composite and fuel rich solid propellants; steady burning rates and temperature profiles; and ignition. More recently, his focus has been on the combustion and application of innovative high-energy materials, nano-sized technology, performance of metallized and dual metal formulations, agglomerations and aggregations. He published nearly 100 papers in the international reviewed journals, more than 50 patents and 5 books during recent years.
