Synthesis of highly loaded gelled propellants
A new method for preparing gelled propellants containing nano-particles has been demonstrated. Typical propellant fuels, nano-particles and gelling agents were chosen to establish capability of ResonantAcoustic® technology to produce viable gelled propellants containing energetic metal and semi-metal nano-particles. A variety of high-solids containing gelled propellants were synthesized. Their rheology, stability and combustion characteristics were measured and compared to gelled propellants produced using conventional propeller mixing techniques.
