ABSTRACT

The possibilities of artificial neural networks (ANN) technologies for modeling and characteristics prediction of energetic materials burning are discussed. For the first time, the "black box" computational model of burning characteristics prediction for a propellant is created. It allows one to predict the temperature profiles in propellant combustion waves by means of data about heat of combustion, burning rate, and pressure. Another kind of "black box" computational model is also discussed, which allows one to determine a propellant mixture providing a necessary burning rate for various pressures. Methods for the creation of such models are discussed. The examples of ANN being used for the temperature profile prediction for nitrocellulose and ammonium perchlorate based composite propellants under various experimental conditions are presented.
