The Critical Burning of Pyrotechnic Compositions

Introduction:  The author attempts to establish a general theory summarizing the phenomena related to the chemical reactions occurring inside pyrotechnic compositions. There are three types of reactions: smoldering, burning and detonation. In addition, there are several interesting variations like sparking, flashing [strobing] and pyrotechnic whistling. These phenomena fall between smoldering and burning or between burning and explosion and should be referred to as “critical burning”. The theory must include these phenomena.
