Energy Content of HMX–Silicon Nanopowder Mixtures

  • M. N. Makhov
Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves


Detonation calorimetry studies have shown that the addition of a silicon nanopowder (n-Si) to HMX leads to a significant increase in the heat of explosion. However, the heat of explosion of composites with n-Si is lower than that of composites containing boron and aluminum (particularly aluminum nanoparticles). Combustible additives have been arranged in orders taking into account their effect on the energy content of the explosive.
