Abstract

Simulations with reduced kinetic models are used to study shock ignition and detonation in reactive materials that may support non-classical detonation. Porous aluminum Teflon oxidizer mixtures that support combustion reactions in air are considered, as a member of a class of materials with intrinsic interest. We recast a phenomenological theory [4] with realistic kinetics with end products whose primary components are AlF 3, CO, CO 2 and Al 2O 3. Intermediate products include at least thirty elementary reactions; a sub-set can be selected to simplify, but a hard problem remains. Results of the multi-species evolution and its impact on rapid self-oxidizing combustion and possible detonation conditions and the computational methods are presented.
