Download or read book entitled Nanomaterials in Rocket Propulsion Systems by author: Qi-Long Yan which was release on 16 October 2018 and published by Elsevier with total page 592 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Nanomaterials in Rocket Propulsion Systems covers the fundamentals of nanomaterials and examines a wide range of innovative applications, presenting the current state-of-the-art in the field. Opening with a chapter on nano-sized energetic materials, the book examines metal nanoparticles-based fuels, ballistic modifiers, stabilizers and catalysts as the components of rocket propellants. Hydrogen storage materials for rocket propulsion based on nanotubes are then discussed, as are nano-porous materials and metal organic frameworks, nano-gelled propellants, nano-composite ablators and ceramic nano-composites. Other applications examined include high thermal conductivity metallic nano-composite nozzle liners, nano-emitters for Coulomb propulsion of space-crafts, and highly thermostable nano-ceramics for rocket motors. The book finishes with coverage of combustion of nano-sized rocket fuels, nano-particles and their combustion in micro- and nano-electromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS), plasma propulsion and nano-scale physics. Users will find this to be a valuable resource for academic and government institutions, professionals, new researchers and graduate students working in the application of nanomaterials in the aerospace industry. Provides a detailed overview of different types of nanomaterials used in rocket propulsion, highlighting different situations in which different materials are used Demonstrates the use of new nanomaterial concepts, allowing for an increase in payload capacity or a decrease in launch mass Explores a range of applications using metal nanopowders, presenting a panorama on cutting-edge, technological developments
