Abstract : A study is made of the burning characteristics of a statistical family of 16 fuel-rich combinations of the lead dioxide-cupric oxide-silicon starter mix system. Factors that determine the behavior and predictability of the system are defined and investigated by calorimetry, pressure-time curve studies and other techniques. The burning characteristics required for optimum performance as a starter composition are considered.
