SOLID-PROPELLANT ROCKET IGNITION SYSTEMS. II. A RESEARCH PROGRAM FOR THE SCIENTIFIC DESIGN OF IGNITERS
NAVAL ORDNANCE LAB WHITE OAK MD
Pagination or Media Count:
A practical program for the design of solid-rocket igniters is developed from an evaluation of rocket-ignition processes. The evaluation consists of the derivation of igniion fundamentals from an analysis of combustion-ignition theory the determination of rocket-ignition principles from an analysis of the important processes involved and the development of anANALYTICAL, ROCKET-IGNITION MODEL TO DESCRIBE THE FUNCTION OF THE IGNITER IN THE IGNITION PROCESS. Based on the rocket-ignition model an engineering-type research program is constructed for the study of ignition in four basic phases 1 the ignition system, 2 ignitability, 3 hydrodynamic phenomena, and 4 rocket ignition. The plan is to develop quantitative and qualittive ignier-design criteria through experimental and theoretical studies of each phase and the interrelations among the phases. Author
