The present research deals with a hybrid combustion of aluminum/boron dust particles in a heterogeneous quiescent reaction medium with spatially discrete heat sources. A developed thermal model is employed to estimate flame propagation speed in a reaction medium. The burning velocity and minimum ignition energy are studied parametrically as a function of dust concentration and particle diameter for different percentages of boron powder in a hybrid mixture of aluminum/boron dust cloud. The model...[Show more]
