Spontaneous Flammability of Pentaborane and Pentaborane-3-Methylpentane Blends

Description: Memorandum presenting a study of the spontaneous flammability of pentaborane and pentaborane-3-methylpentane blends. The behavior of the substances in air and in liquid and vapor states was studied. Results regarding conditions under which pentaborane did not ignite and conditions under which pentaborane did ignite are provided.

Rate of reaction of gaseous fluorine with water vapor at 35 degrees C

Description: Report presenting testing of fluorine and water vapor, which react extremely slowly or not at all in the gas phase at 35 degrees Celsius at partial pressures of the reactants up to 40 mm of mercury. Results regarding the gross nature of the reaction, order of the reaction, kinetics of surface and gas-phase reactions, relative importance of surface and gas-phase reactions, and rate of surface reaction are provided.

Exploratory investigation of static- and base-pressure increases resulting from combustion of aluminum borohydride adjacent to body of revolution in supersonic wing tunnel

Description: Report presenting pressure distribution associated with the stable combustion of aluminum borohydride about a body of revolution in a wind tunnel at Mach number 2.47. Pressure increases on the cylindrical and base surfaces of the model were measured. Results regarding the burning and associated flow phenomena, axial and meridional static-pressure data obtained during combustion, and base-pressure data during combustion are provided.

A preliminary investigation of static-pressure changes associated with combustion of aluminum borohydride in a supersonic wind tunnel

Description: Report presenting static-pressure changes resulting from steady combustion of aluminum borohydride in a supersonic wind tunnel. Static pressures were measured along the top wall of a tunnel adjacent to the flame that filled the upper portion of the test section. Results regarding the static-pressure increases, effect of change in fuel-injection rate, and effect of tunnel boundary layer on the character of the heat-addition region are provided.

Exploratory investigation of aerodynamic effects of external combustion of aluminum borohydride in airstream adjacent to flat plate in Mach 2.46 tunnel

Description: Report presenting pressure distributions associated with stable combustion of aluminum borohydride in the supersonic stream adjacent to a short, 13-inch chord, and an extended, 25-inch chord, flat-plate model. High-speed direct and schileren motion pictures of the flame and associated shock waves were taken. Results regarding the description of the combustion and associated stream disturbances, static-pressure change at model reference surface caused by combustion, lift forces resulting from combustion, base pressure change caused by combustion, stream-parameter measurements during combustion, and surface temperature changes during combustion are provided.

Aluminum borohydride as an ignition source for turbojet combustors

Description: From Introduction: "Problems associated with the use of aluminum borohydride for ignition in aircraft are discussed. A detailed description of its properties and results of static chamber tests to determine the effect of diluting aluminum borohydride with n-pentane on flammability in dry air are included in this investigation."
