About this book

This book focuses on the combustion performance and application of innovative energetic materials for solid and hybrid space rocket propulsion. It provides a comprehensive overview of advanced technologies in the field of innovative energetic materials and combustion performance, introduces methods of modeling and diagnosing the aggregation/agglomeration of active energetic metal materials in solid propellants, and investigates the potential applications of innovative energetic materials in solid and hybrid propulsion. In addition, it also provides step-by-step solutions for sample problems to help readers gain a good understanding of combustion performance and potential applications of innovative energetic materials in space propulsion. This book serves as an excellent resource for researchers and engineers in the field of propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics.

About the authors

WeiQiang Pang is a professor at Xi'an Modern Chemistry Research Institute. His research mainly focuses on the innovative energetic materials and their combustion, application in solid propellants. In recent years he has published more than 100 papers in international, peer-reviewed journals, more than 50 patents, and 5 books.

Luigi T. DeLuca received his Ph.D. degree from Princeton University, USA, in 1976. He then worked as a Professor at the Space Propulsion Laboratory (RET), Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy. He is currently a Visiting Professor at Nanjing University of Science & Technology, China.

Alexander A. Gromov currently works at Rapid prototyping centre "Kinetica" of the National University of Science and Technology "MISiS". His research focuses on energetic materials, combustion chemistry, additive manufacturing etc. He has published more than 100 articles and 10 books.

Prof Cumming obtained both his degrees in Chemistry from the University of Edinburgh. He has worked on energetic materials since 1976. He was latterly an advisor to the MOD, and was based at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory until 2014. He has particular current interest in the environmental issues and the design of new materials for energetic systems.
