Thermophysical parameters for the combustion products from tetrazole-sodium tetrazolate mixtures

  • 22 Accesses


Measurements have been made on the thermal conductivity and specific heat of the powder product from quenching in nitrogen applied to the gas-liquid flame formed by the combustion of a tetrazole-sodium tetrazolate mixture in weight proportion 3∶1. The thermal conductivity on the whole is a nonmonotone function of temperature in the range 100–450 K and has some local turning points associated with the multicomponent structure and the phase transitions associated with chemical and structural transformations.
