    This chapter is an update to Chapter 9, Military Energetic Materials, Explosives, and Propellants, in the previous edition of this book.1 Much of the chapter has been revised to reflect new. Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics (PEP) is an international, peer-reviewed journal containing Full Papers, Short Communications, critical Reviews, as well as details of forthcoming meetings and book reviews concerned with the research, development and production in relation to propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics for all applications.

    Hodgdon, The Brand That’s True®, is pleased to announce a new book, The Gunpowder People: The Official Authorized History of Hodgdon Powder Company, by James W. Bequette. Celebrating the 70 th Anniversary of the company’s founding, this book covers the history of the Hodgdon family, the founding of the company in , the key employees instrumental in building the company in the last.

    Smokeless propellants are just a part of the Hodgdon Powder story. Hunters and muzzleloading shooters around the globe recognize Hodgdon Powder as the company that makes the most convenient, best performing, safest, and easiest to clean black powder substitute propellants. Introduced in , Pyrodex is the most sold black powder substitute. Where possible, store the powder at a constant temperature, ideally between 12 and 15°C, and a relative humidity of 40–50%. If the air is too dry, it will dry out the powder, which will cause the pressure to be higher, thus affecting performance. Also make sure that .

I'm not talking about specific powders, but rather smokeless powder in general. Ball vs. flake vs. extruded powder. Single base vs. double base, when to use them, when or even if it matters. There's not even a burn rate chart included in this book.

That, to me, is unacceptable for a text claiming to be the authority on propellants/5(8). Each book is similarly comprised of propellant (powder) reviews taken from the pages of past editions of Handloader Magazine.

What you WILL find is a history of the various propellants as investigated and tested by an expert reviewer/5(34). First published in as a private publication for the Navy, Powder and Propellants is now available again as a revised and expanded second edition, with a new chapter on the institution’s last decade.

Those interested in military history, technology, and government institutional history. Mortar Increments General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems is the leading manufacturer of propellants for 60mm, 81mm and mm Mortar Systems. These propellants are flash-suppressed and clean burning resulting in minimum residue, flash and blast overpressure.

Explosia has been in business making propellants since the ’s. They’re a long-established company, makers of high quality propellants. Explosia sells several of its propellants in the European reloading market, under the name of “Lovex”.

All of these reloading propellants are appropriate for the United States reloading market. It, like others in the “ascorbic acid” based family of propellants, is sulfur free and therefore less corrosive than Pyrodex and black powder.

Its performance is worse than both, though, and it often leaves a peculiar, hard crud at the muzzle. Shooters World distributes smokeless powder and propellant to reloaders and competitive shooters.

We have a variety of pistol, rifle and shot shell powders. The propellants consist of a thermite and a gas-generating substance, in which nano-Al/CuO and nitrocellulose are the best substances for solid propellant.

Thermite-based propellants can be synthesized or prepared by ultrasonic mixing, electrospray mixing, and the sol–gel process, in which the sol–gel process is the best to synthesize.

Clearly structured, the first half of the book presents an introduction to pyrodynamics, describing fundamental aspects of the combustion of energetic materials, while the second part highlights applications of energetic materials, such as propellants, explosives and pyrolants, with a focus on the phenomena occurring in rocket motors.

In addition, according to Rodney Carlisle in his book, Powder and Propellants: Energetic Materials at Indian Head, Maryland,the model inch gun, with the shorter barrel, could only penetrate inches of steel, while “a inch gun with a smokeless powder charge could fire an pound uncapped projectile that would.

sets requirements for shipping containers for propellants and requires tests of loaded containers under actual fire conditions before approving them for use. When smokeless powder in DOT approved containers is ignited during such tests, the container seams split open or lids pop off to release gases and powder from confinement at low pressure.

A propellant or propellent is a chemical substance used in the production of energy or pressurized gas that is subsequently used to create movement of a fluid or to generate propulsion of a vehicle, projectile, or other propellants are energetic materials and consist of a fuel like gasoline, jet fuel, rocket fuel, and an lants are burned or otherwise decomposed to.

The fundamentals of rocket propulsion are developed in chapter one and detailed descriptions of concepts are covered in the following chapters. propellants and explosives. A comprehensive review of the early work was conducted by Price et al. in The experimental and theoretical literature pertaining to the ignition of solid propellants over the period of through was reviewed by Kulkarni et al and Hermance The state of understanding in Russia up to was.

Powder and Propellants is the story of the U.S. Navy’s premier facility for research, development, testing, and evaluation of “energetic materials,” the chemical compounds used in gun and rocket propellants as well as in aircraft cockpit ejection seats.

Initially charged to improve the penetrating power of warheads against steel armor, Indian Head became the proving grounds. This third edition of the classic on the thermochemical aspects of the combustion of propellants and explosives is completely revised and updated and now includes a section on green propellants and offers an up-to-date view of the thermochemical aspects of combustion and corresponding applications.

Print book: English: 2nd edView all editions and formats Summary: This is the story of the US Navy's premier facility for research, development, testing and evaluation of ""energetic materials"", the chemical compounds used in gun and rocket propellants as well as aircraft cockpit ejection seats.With data for modern cartridges, old favorites and obscure wildcats, the Western Powders Handloading Guide picks up where the well-loved Accurate Arms books left off.

Featuring new propellants, including the complete line of Ramshot, Accurate and Blackhorn powders, this comprehensive guide presents the most advanced loading information.Smokeless powder is the name given to a number of propellants used in firearms and artillery that produce negligible smoke when fired, unlike the gunpowder or black powder they replaced.

The term is unique to the United States and is generally not used in other English-speaking countries, which initially used proprietary names such as "Ballistite" and "Cordite" but gradually shifted to.
