Abstract : An optical absorption experiment coupled to a windowed strand burner has been used to obtain dark zone temperatures and nitric oxide concentrations for two nitramine propellants (M43 and XM39) and a single base propellant (M10). Moreover, burn rates as a function of pressure were determined from the video record of the propellant burns. These measurements were taken over a pressure range from 0.8 to 2 MPa....
