The results of studies of the effect of particle size of aluminum powder in condensed systems on the ignition, nonstationary combustion, and acoustic conductivity of the burning surface are presented. Analysis of the experimental data shows that the ignition delay and the temperature of burning surface of the heterogeneous condensed systems under study decrease with increasing particle size of aluminum powder, and the nature of the dependence of the nonstationary burning rate on the time of depressurization of the combustion chamber for compositions containing micron or ultrafine aluminum powders is in qualitative agreement with the phenomenological theory of nonstationary combustion. Replacement of micron aluminum powder by ultrafine powder in a heterogeneous condensed system increases acoustic conductivity.
