Abstract

Solid state detonation (SSD) refers to nonclassical supersonic reactive wave phenomena in energetic materials that are not typically considered explosives. Reactive energetic materials include both metal/metal oxide and metal oxide/polymer systems with thermitic reaction. Like conventional solid explosives, the materials are manufactured composites with a well-defined microstructure. Ingredients include nano-engineered energetic materials with novel surface and reaction properties. The manufactured materials are still described by a continuum limit informed by the microstructural properties. We consider limit model formulations that include acoustic dispersion phenomena, void effect, macroscopic ignition and extinction of steady traveling reactive waves, in a modeling framework that can aid the design of new materials, which will be the basis for our continued work on SSD including the inter-material heat transfer and kinetics.
