Abstract: An experimental investigation of the combustion characteristics of nanoaluminum (nAl), liquid water (H 2 O (l) ), and hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ) mixtures has been conducted. Linear and mass-burning rates as functions of pressure, equivalence ratio (Φ), and concentration of H 2 O 2 in H 2 O (l) oxidizing solution are reported. Steady-state burning rates were obtained at room temperature using a windowed pressure vessel over an initial pressure range of 0.24 to 12.4 MPa in argon, using average nAl particle di…
