Abstract:

The buning-rate data on a lage number of magnesium-based ramjet solid-fuel charges were analyzed to determine what fators in the test situation influence the burning rate. The charges were internal-burning, hollow cylinders. The burning rate is shown to increase linearly with combustion pressre, to decrease at high inlet-air temperature, and to increase with airflow Mach number over the burning surface. Curves were constructed that permit estimation of the burning rate as a function of pressure and internal Mach number. Author
