An experimental and analytical program was conducted as a step in a systematic engineering parametric study to establish the necessary engineering criteria for the prediction and prevention of flow decay in operational nitrogen tetroxide systems. Tests were made with both green and red-brown nitrogen tetroxide over ranges of seven other parameters initial propellant temperature, temperature drop before reaching the test section, time during which the temperature drop is imposed, filter pore size, local velocity through the filter, total volume per unit filter area of propellant passing through the filter during a test, and iron saturation condition.
