1. The study of the flow and transformation of energy.
2. The flow and transformation of energy within a particular system. of chemical compounds used as propellants and explosives, such as heat of formation, heat of explosion, adiabatic flame temperature In the study of combustion, there are two types of adiabatic flame temperature depending on how the process is completed: constant volume and constant pressure. The constant volume adiabatic flame temperature is the temperature that results from a complete combustion process that , and specific impulse. The results of measurements on the burning rate of crystalline and polymeric materials, double-based propellants, composite propellants composite modified double based propellants, and explosives are then presented. Remaining chapters discuss the formation of energetic pyrolants (metal-based pyrotechnic compositions), combustion propagation of pyrolants, emission from combustion products, transient combustion of propellants and pyrolants, rocket thrust modulation, and ducted rocket propulsion.
