Abstract:

The report summarizes and describes an extensive spectroradiometric study of the radiation produced in the 0.43 micron - 1.17 micron region by flames resulting from the combustion of magnesium with the alkali and alkaline earth nitrates and with sodium perchlorate at an ambient air pressure of 630 torr. Both fuel rich and stoichiometric compositions were studied. Additional studies were made of the influence of the ambient air pressure on the combustion of a 57 Mg, 38 NaNO3, 5 Laminac composition at ambient air pressure ranging from 760 torr to 1 torr to determine quantitatively the decline in output.
