Abstract : As thermodynamic information on the performance of specific engines using specific fuels was found to be inadequate. A computer program was developed for combustion studies of liquid rocket propellants. These included UDMH-N2 04, hydrazine-N2 O4. and RP-1-LOX fuel-oxidiza combinations. Results are tabulated. A brief analysis was made of some of the more important performance perameters for the three fuel-oxidizer combinations. Studies of mixing ratio against temperature, and composition of certain key exhaust constituents, such as H2O, CO, and CO2 reveal many features of importance to the propulsion engineer, as well as to the spectrosopist. Also considered was the study of expansion ratio with mixing ratio. (Author)
