This third edition of the classic on the thermochemical aspects of the combustion of propellants and explosives is completely revised and updated and now includes a section on green propellants and offers an up-to-date view of the thermochemical aspects of combustion and corresponding applications.
Clearly structured, the first half of the book presents an introduction to pyrodynamics, describing fundamental aspects of the combustion of energetic materials, while the second part highlights applications of energetic materials, such as propellants, explosives and pyrolants, with a focus on the phenomena occurring in rocket motors. Finally, an appendix gives a brief overview of the fundamentals of aerodynamics and heat transfer, which is a prerequisite for the study of pyrodynamics.
A detailed reference for readers interested in rocketry or explosives technology.

From the Back Cover:

Explosives and propellants contain considerable chemical energythat can be converted into rapid expansion. In contrast to thesimple burning of a fuel, explosives and propellants areself-contained and do not need an external supply of oxygen viaair. Since their energy content inherently creates the risk ofaccidental triggering of the explosive reaction, the correctsynthesis, formulation, and handling during production and use areof utmost importance for safety, necessitating specialist knowledgeon energetic materials, their characteristics, handling andapplications.
This second edition of the classic on the thermochemistry ofcombustion covers the thermochemical and combustion characteristicsof all important types of energetic materials, such as explosives,propellants, and the new class of pyrolants, as well as relatedphenomena. Addressing both experimental as well as theoreticalaspects, it presents the fundamental bases of the energetics ofmaterials, deflagration and detonation, thermochemical process ofdecomposition and combustion, plus combustion wave structures. Thebook also goes on to discuss the combustion mechanisms of varioustypes of energetic materials, propellants, and explosives, based onthe heat transfer process in the combustion waves. The burning ratemodels are also presented as an aid to understanding therate-controlling steps of combustion processes, thus demonstratingthe relationships of burning rate versus pressure and initialtemperature.
Also new to this edition are five additional chapters providingupdated coverage of significant recent developments in the field,as well as the major topic of such propulsion methods as ductrockets, ramjets, pulse motors and thrusters, while appendices onflow field dynamics and shock wave propagation have also beenadded.

From the reviews of the first edition:

"Propellants and Explosives provides a good survey of a field thatis far from simple. The essential facts are presentedsystematically and in a clearly understandable way, helped by manyfigures and photographs...The book will provide the interestedreader with an easy introduction to this complex subject." --Angewandte Chemie Intl. Ed.

Dr. Kubota received a Doctorate from Princeton University in 1973,majoring in "Solid Propellant Combustion" and "Rocket Propulsionincluding Ducted Rocket Engine". His current position is SeniorResearch Scientist of Propellant Combustion Laboratory, AsahiKasei
Chemicals. Previously, he was Director, Third Research Center,Technical Research and Development Institute (TRDI), Japan DefenseAgency, which is responsible for aircraft and missiles.

About the Author:

Prof. Kubota works as scientific advisor at the National Institute of Industrial Science and Technology (Tsukuba, Japan). In 1973 he received his Doctorate from Princeton University, majoring in "Solid Propellant Combustion" and "Rocket Propulsion including Ducted Rocket Engine". During his career he was Director of the Third Research Center of the Technical Research and Development Institute (TRDI, Japan Defense Agency), which is responsible for aircraft and missile research. Afterwards, Prof. Kubota held a position as Senior Research Scientist in the Propellant Combustion Laboratory at Asahi Kasei Chemicals (Japan).
