Abstract : The program consisted of two inter-related tasks: Theoretical modeling and experimental verification. Task I of the effort focused on thermodynamic modeling of the SHS reactions, and modeling of the heat transfer efficiency between the SHS reaction and the target plate. This task limited the number of acceptable reactions. Task II consisted of verifying experimentally the results of Task I. During this stage, several reactions were initiated on fully instrumented target plates. Useful data of these reactions was collected using thermocouples, FLIR, and video recording. This data was analyzed in order to optimize the heat transfer of each reaction. Keywords: Heat transfer, SHS reactions, Metals, Steel, Brass.
