Abstract:

Most calculations of propellant performance, including those considering kinetic nozzle flows, are based on equilibrium composition in the combustion chamber. Departures from equilibrium combustion are cited and the effect of non-equilibrium or kinetic combustion upon propellant performance for the hydrazinenitrogen tetroxide combination is reported. Non-equilibrium combustion may yield performance either greater than or less than equilibrium combustion. Author
