Paper Abstract

Thermite is a mixture of a metal and oxide which is consolidated to form a composite chemical heat source. Thermal profiles of reacting thermite composites were generated and analyzed to determine the burn rate and the heat propagation during and after the reaction. These thermal profiles are used to establish rates of heat transfer. A time-expanded "infra-red thermography video will be used to show burn rate, heat propagation, and burn uniformity of consolidated thermite during reaction.
