Abstract:

A wide range of fuels and oxidizers are mentioned in this discussion of rocket propellants. Heat combustion is compared for carbon, hydrogen, kerosine, ethyl alcohol, hydrazine, and boron as well as the petroleum products Prop. T-1, Prop. TS-2, Prop. T-2, heavy kerosine, and gasoline B-70. Heating capacity and specific thrust are compared for kerosine, alcohol, hydrogen, and hydrazine with combustion in liquid oxygen. Heat of combustion and heating capacity are discussed for Li, C, Mg, Be, and B. Single-component and unitary propellants are defined, propellant feed systems are described, and solid propellants are discussed and compared.
