A Trigonometric Approach to a Limiting Law on Detonation Velocity

Türker, Burhan Lemi
Detonation velocity is an important characteristics of explosive compounds. Presently, to get some insight about the detonation velocity, a novel trigonometric model has been suggested first in 2-dimensional form and then extended to 3-dimension. In the 2D-form the detonation velocity is considered to be a function of the total energy and a newly defined "angle of detonation", Q, of an explosive molecule. The angle of detonation velocity is also shown to be a nonlinear function of the total energy. In the 3D-form another angle, Phi, affects the detonation velocity. Some regressed equations are obtained. It has been shown that Q, thus the detonation velocity asymptotically approaches to a constant value as the total energy increases in absolute value which has some direct relationship with the molecular weight of an explosive compound. It has been shown that tan Phi values correlate with density of explosives.


An Experimental and numerical investigation of warpage behavior of silicon substrates at cryogenic temperatures
Baloğlu, Eyüp Can; Okutucu Özyurt, Hanife Tuba; Dursunkaya, Zafer; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
Surface deformations and thermal stress behavior of microelectronic devices that operate at cryogenic temperatures (less than 120 K) and under vacuum conditions are important phenomena that aff ect the reliability requirements of such components. Excessive deformation and thermal stress on these devices may result in interconnect failure, performance degradation or other direct mechanical failure of one or more components. To obtain reliable products, surface deformations, named as warpage most widely, and ...
A theoretical study of JP-10 hydroperoxidation
Türker, Burhan Lemi; Varis, Serhat; Bayar, Caglar Celik (2013-02-01)
P-10 (C10H16) is one of cyclic, high-energy-density fuels being used in aircrafts. This single component fuel takes the advantage of increased energy storage available through its strained cyclic geometry. In recent years, the quality of petroleum feedstocks used by refineries has decreased. Examination of fuels refined by different processes has indicated that significantly higher peroxide concentrations exist in fuels which have been severely hydrotreated. Hydroperoxide concentration has been found to be ...
Experimental analysis on the measurement of ballistic properties of solid propellants
Cuerdaneli, S.; Ak, M. A.; Ulaş, Abdullah (2007-06-16)
Ballistic properties of solid propellants play an important role in the performance of the solid propellant rocket motors. Therefore, ballistic properties of a likely propellant should be known and provided to the design engineers. In this study, a specific AP/HTPB composite solid propellant (SCP) was examined to obtain steady-state linear burning rates as a function of pressure and propellant initial temperature, temperature sensitivity, and pressure deflagration limit (PDL). In some tests micro-thermocoup...
Analytical Solutions for Liquid Slugs and Pigs Traveling in Pipelines with Entrapped Gas
TİJSSELİNG, Arris S; QİNGZHİ, Hou; Bozkuş, Zafer (2017-07-20)
Liquid slugs have a relatively low mass and can therefore when they occupy a full cross-section of a pipeline be accelerated to very high velocities by means of pressurized gas. When entrapped gas pockets are present, pressures and temperatures may become dangerously high. Simple models and analytical solutions are derived and used to predict transient velocities, pressures and temperatures. The models have a generic character as they also describe the basics of breaking surface waves impacting on a wall, a...
Investigation of the Linear Stability Problem of Electrified Jets, Inviscid Analysis
Özgen, Serkan; Uzol, Oğuz (2012-09-01)
The instability characteristics of a liquid jet discharging from a nozzle into a stagnant gas are investigated using the linear stability theory. Starting with the equations of motion for incompressible, inviscid, axisymmetric flows in cylindrical coordinates, a dispersion relation is obtained, where the amplification factor of the disturbance is related to its wave number. The parameters of the problem are the laminar velocity profile shape parameter, surface tension, fluid densities, and electrical charge...
