Abstract: Mechanical and ballistics properties are a measure of the performance of AP/Al/HTPB composites. These properties are influenced by the characteristics of inorganic crystalline oxidizer and aluminum particles. This paper reports the effect of the particle size distribution on mechanical and burning properties of 87% solid loaded composites. Composites were fabricated by mixing the ingredients in the planetary mixer followed by curing at an elevated temperature for several days. Multimodal particle size distribution was used in which coarse to fine ratio was varied proportionally. The burning rate was measured using strand burner at various pressures. Mechanical properties of the composites were investigated by using tensile tester. Results revealed that tensile strength and the burning rate increased while elongation at maximum stress decreased with the increase in the quantity of fines oxidizer. Whereas the variation in the particle size of the aluminum do not have any pronounced effect on the burning as well as mechanical properties of the composite.

Abstract: Spinel Nanoferrites of Composition Mg0.50Cu0.5-XNixFe2O4 (0.00≤x≤0.50) Were Synthesized by Chemical Co-Precipitation Method. the Structural, Morphological and Magnetically Changes due to Varying Concentrations of Metal Ions of Cu and Ni in the Prepared Nanoferrites Were Studied. XRD Confirmed the Formation of Single Phase Spinel Ferrite with Crystalline Sizes in between 16-29 Nm, and the Lattice Parameter (a) Found to Decreases with Increase of Ni Concentration. Electrical Resistivity of the Prepared Nanoferrites with Varying Nickel and Copper Concentrations X Observed to Follow Arrhenius Relation and Also Exhibited the Semiconductor Behavior. the Magnetic Hysteresis Curves Clearly Indicate the Soft Nature of the Prepared Samples. Saturation Magnetization (Ms) Increases with Ni Content. This Effect Is Related to the Magnetic Moments of Ni+2 Ions. the Y-K Angles Increase with Increasing Ni Content, and Suggest a Non Collinearity Néel Type of Ordering of the Y-K Type. the Increase in the Y-K Angles Also Suggests the Increase in Triangular Spin Arrangements on B Sites, which Subsequently Lead to Increment in A-B Interactions.

Abstract: The Polymorphic Er2Si2O7 Is Synthesized by Solid State Double Sintering Method. Structural and Morphological Characterizations Have Been Performed Using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The Electrical Characterization Has Been Performed by Two Probe Method as a Function of Temperature. the Dielectric Spectroscopic Measurements of Polymorphic Er2Si2O7 Are Performed in the Temperature Range 300-555 K and Frequency Range 3 kHz to 1 MHz. the dc Electrical Transport Data Are Analyzed According to Mott’s Variable-Range Hopping. The ac Conductivity σac(ω) Is Obtained through the Dielectric Spectroscopic Measurements. the ac Conductivity Obeys Power Law which Can Be Expressed as σac (ω) = B ωs, where S Is Slope and it Determines the ac Electrical Transport Phenomenon. the ac Electrical Transport Data and its Variation with Temperature in this Rare Earth Formulation Are Well Discussed. the Magnetic Behavior of Synthesized Material Is Analyzed and Confirmed that Material Have Non-Magnetic Behavior with Coercivity (Hc) 842 Oe. while the Values of Magnetic Saturation (MS) and Remanace (Mr) Were Found in Range 3.90emu/g and 1.07emu/g.
