About the Project
Computational modelling will be undertaken to simulate NC entrained with NG and in the presence of known additives and solvents. A correlation between these models and predicted impact sensitivity modification will also be explored. A comprehensive experimental structural characterisation of double base propellant samples, utilising MALDI-mass spectrometry imaging, inelastic neutron scattering (INS) spectroscopy, X-ray and neutron diffraction studies, will also be undertaken, with further potential to explore small angle X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS and SANS).
This proposal will therefore enhance our understanding of structural models for double base propellant formulations using state-of-the-art computational modelling and experimental techniques, and provide benchmark data for materials properties in relation to key performance criteria for different NC/NG compositions.
Formal applications to Edinburgh are made through the University’s EUCLID system. http://www.chem.ed.ac.uk/studying/postgraduate-research/applications-and-entry-requirements
The position will remain open until filled and is available to start any time.
