The survey consists of two parts. Part I contains a general discussion of selected articles on solid propellant combustion and Part II comprises the abstracts of these articles. The information in Part I is divided into 8 sections 1 The effect of pressure 2 Particle size, porosity, and density 3 The effect of temperature 4 Condensed phase reactions 5 Ignition characteristics 6 Additives and catalytic effects 7 Theoretical stability criteria 8 Miscellaneous. The material reviewed indicates that Soviet investigators are placing particular emphasis on the following three areas the relationships between the pressure and the burning velocity the effect of porosity, particle size, and density on burning velocity and instability and condensed-phase reactions. These three subjects are discussed somewhat further by the analyst in the Introduction which includes the analysts evaluation of Soviet combustion research. Part II includes 73 abstracts.
