Abstract:

A compilation of physical and performance data for both neat and heterogeneous propellants in bipropellant and air-augmented applications is presented, with emphasis on the air-augmented cases. Physical and thermochemical properties for the neat liquid fuels and oxidizers include boiling point, freezing point, density, heat of formation, vapor pressure, critical properties, heat of vaporization, viscosity and specific heat. Physical properties for the heterogeneous fuels include composition, density, graph of shear stress versus shear rate and temperature, mechanical and thermal stability, specific heat, thermal conductivity and heat of formation. A calculated composite formula for each gel fuel based on a molecular weight of 100 is also given in the property tables. The performance applications feature bipropellant operation, augmented boost, an air-augmented cruise case MR 0.2 in a ducted rocket configuration and the ramjet mode of operation. The results of the theoretical calculations on performance include, when applicable, the maximum density and specific impulse, bulk density, mixture ratio, air ratio and burnout velocity. Author
