For over a decade Purdue University has been studying Energetic Materials using VALIMET Aluminum powders.
Professor Steve Son’s team is working on hot stuff and the Rocket Motors industry should carefully check on their upcoming publications.
In a recent hybrid meeting, Chris Adam, Ian McCarthy and Luigi Alzati reviewed with Purdue’s team (including Tim Manship, Caleb Harper, Metin Örnek) the state of their studies in Aluminum for Propellants.
We decided to host on our website’s Literature page a significant selection of their works based on VALIMET powders.
Let us acknowledge all the co-authors of these papers. It’s a pool of talents for the Academic world and for the Rocket Motors Industry:
Tim Manship, Hatem Belal, Kyle Uhlenhake, Ph.D., Diane Collard, Alexander C. Hoganson, Alex D. Brown, Sara Fox, Metin Ornek, Jeff Rhoads, Gabriel Diez, Ibrahim Gunduz, Brandon Terry, Morgan Ruesch, Austin McDonald, Garrett Mathews, Christopher Goldenstein, Michael S. Powell, Weixiao Shang, Jun Chen, Yi Chen and Daniel R. Guildenbecher, Mario A. Rubio, Emre Gunduz, Lori Groven, Travis Sippel, Chang Wan Han, Raymond Unocic, Volkan Ortalan, David Reese; Darren M. Wright, David E. Kittell, Timothee Pourpoint, Omar R. Yehia, Andrew Noel.
Also, we we listed a study made in a collaboration between Penn State University (Richard Yetter, Terrence L. Connell, Jr., Grant A. Risha), Steven Son from Purdue and Vigor Yang, from Georgia Institute of Technology.
(Yes, this IS Rocket Science).
