Currently, the properties of energetics and the uses for them are limited by traditional manufacturing techniques like casting. Cast energetics typically must be produced in large amounts, are limited to certain geometries and properties, and are expensive to transport to the work location. Additive manufacturing expands the applications of energetics by eliminating some of the problems faced in traditional manufacturing. The end goal of this project is to create an energetic initiator ink for additive manufacturing that will have the ability to be produced in a wider range of geometries, have tailorable burn properties, and can be produced in non-specific locations. The present work focuses on the characterization of burn rate as a function of composition of the energetic system.
