Abstract: The low-sensitivity high-energy substance 1-methyl-3-nitro-1,2,4-triazole (1Me-3H), synthesized at the IPCET SB RAS, is considered as a promising additive capable of increasing the explosion force of nanotermitic compositions. The paper presents the results of a study of the explosion force (F) of the nanothermic composition CuO / Al / 1Me-3H, depending on the content of 1Me3H. A number of compositions of various prescription configurations were investigated: I - the ratio of the components of the ternary mixture CuO/Al/1Me-3H corresponded to the maximum calculated heat of explosion of the composition (Q) at a given content of 1Me-3H; II - the ratio of the components of the ternary mixture corresponded to the maximum calculated value of the pressure (P) developed during the combustion of the composition in a closed volume; III — the ratio of the components of the base nanothermite pair CuO/Al (79/21 %), corresponding to the maximum calculated value of Q, remained constant in the ternary mixture; IV - the ratio of the components of the base nanothermite pair CuO / Al (76/24 %), corresponding to the maximum calculated value of P, remained constant in the ternary mixture. For all types of prescription configurations, an extreme nature of the dependence of the force explosion on the content of 1Me-3H was revealed, while the maximum values of F are observed at an additive content of 5% for configuration I (F = 107%), 10% for configuration II (F = 128%), 25% for configuration III (F = 151%) and 30% for configuration IV (F = 147%).
Index terms: nanothermite, prescription configuration, explosion force.
