The effect of small additives (1.25-5.00%) of ultrafine aluminum powders (UFAP) on the rheology and combustion of model four-component energetic condensed systems is studied. It is found that the addition of UFAP decreases the temperature of HMX decomposition. Small additives of UFAP increase the burning rate of model energetic condensed systems and decrease the exponent ν in the burning rate law without deteriorating the rheological characteristics of the model propellants.
