Paper Abstract

Heat powders are consolidated into dense composites to form concentrated chemical heat sources. During the reaction, a high temperature burn front propagates through the composites. The burn front is preceded by a lower temperature thermal front which generates thermal gradients. Thermography was used to determine thermal gradients preceding the burn front, during the reaction of the consolidated heat powder. The techniques involved along with the resulting thermography will be discussed.
