ME 62000 - Combustion Of Energetic Materials
Credit Hours: 3.00.  Students will learn the concepts of how to approach research in the area of Energetic Materials (EM) based on an understanding of the fundamental principles. Students will learn how energetic materials are fabricated, safety used, as well as understand life cycle issues, homogeneous & heterogenous combustion, and advanced energetic material concepts. Multiphase combustion phenomena will be introduced and emphasized. They will apply these concepts to a literature review and group research project, as well as that includes applying thermochemistry and chemical kinetic software. In addition, six hands-on labs are performed. This material will be covered in the context of real-world applications, with an emphasis on energetic materials, combustion, propulsion, explosives, pyrotechnics, and detonation phenomenon. Pre-requisite: ME 52500 or AAE 53900 or consent of instructor.
