Abstract:

Theories of propellant burning are briefly reviewed in the light of previous studies of the burning behavior and flame structure of composite ammonium perchlorate AP propellant. Those studies showed that the granular diffusion flame GDF theory conforms to the known structure of the propellant flame, and is quantitatively valid for a wide class of practical AP propellants, much more so than any other theory proposed for composite propellants.
