Abstract:

Theyhhysical parameters of gas pressurization and expulsion of a visco-elastic fluid thickened gasoline, and ee related problems of means of pressurization and of recoil com pensation are studied. Pressurization by means of hot combustion gases was selected for inves tigation. From the earlier work, a liquid bi propellant gas generator utilizing nitrogen tetroxide N2O4 and unsymmetrical dimethyl hydrazine UDMH as oxidized and fuel, respec tively, was chosen as being representative of a calss of controllable-output hot gas pressure sources. An alternative approach to a source of pressurization and counterrecoil thrust was a solid-propellant rocket with a coolant-diluent bed between the rocket and the flamethrower fuel tank. Author
