Abstract:

The theoretical performance of inhibited red fuming nitric acid and unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine with various additives was computed. Performance data were computed assuming a chamber pressure of 1,000 psia with optimum expansion to 14.7 psia. In addition, the effect of additives or of programmed density on motor operating conditions is discussed. With a constant nozzle throat area and a constant propellant flow rate, an additive introduced to the combustion chamber increases the chamber pressure significantly. A method for calculating this pressure increase is given. Author
