RESUMO

The main objective of the Second International Symposium on Special Topics in Chemical Propulsion was to review the state-of-the-art in the combustion of boron-based solid propellant and solid fuels by gathering many experts from various countries. The symposium was held in the facility of German Aerospace Research Establishment (DLR) in Lampoldshausen of Germany on 4 -6 March, 1991. The symposium provided an active forum for communication between researchers, propulsion system developers/designers, and manufacturers of boron and its compounds.
Five invited talks were given by Dr. Merrill K. King of NSF, Dr. Bruno Krismer of Hermann C. Starck Berlin GmbH & Co., Professor Alon Gany of Technion Israel Institute of Technology, Professor Alessandro Gomez of Yale University, and Mr. H. L. Besser of MBB Deutsche Aerospace. Their manuscripts are printed in the front portion of this symposium proceeding. Their papers can either be regarded as tutorial material or as review articles of recent advancements in this important field.
The symposium was composed of five sessions covering: (1) Processing Technology and Chemical Kinetics of Boron Particles and Boron-Based Solid Fuels, (2) Ignition and Combustion of a Single Boron Particle, (3) Combustion of Boron-Based Solid Fuels and Slurries, (4) Combustion of Boron-Based Solid Fuels and Propellants in Propulsion Systems, and (5) Combustion of Boron Particle Clouds. After a rigorous review process, twenty eight accepted papers were arranged and printed in the scope of the five sessions mentioned above.
