Abstract:

Interactions of model rocket plumes and the free stream at varying simulated altitudes have been investigated in an altitude simulation chamber. Free-stream variables were Mach number, gas, total temperature, and total pressure. Model rocket parameter variables were exhaust gas, area ratio, chamber total pressure and total temperature, and the orientation of the model relative to the free stream. In addition to pitot probe measurements, plume photographs and density measurements were obtained using the electron beam technique.
