Abstract

The combustion of agglomerated ultrafine aluminum powders in air is studied. It is shown that agglomeration of ultrafine aluminum powders decreases their reactivity during nonisothermal oxidation in air. Under normal and low pressures, the concentration of bound nitrogen in combustion products is lower for agglomerated powders than for unagglomerated powders, and under high pressures, it is higher for agglomerated powders.
