Abstract:

An analytical program has been carried out for the purpose of studying the fluid dynamic and chemical processes occurring in a Solid Propellant Gas Generator SPGG device. The purpose of the SPGG device was to produce chemical exhaust species suitable for operation as a laser. The propellant used in the SPGG was Ammonium Perchlorate AP in a Polybutadiene PBAN fuel matrix. The combustion flame process was considered to occur in three successive steps AP decomposition, PBAN pyrolysis, and combustion of the AP decomposition products with the PBAN pyrolysis products. For this combustion process a gas phase finite rate chemical reaction model was derived. The combustion process occurring near the surface of the propellant was modeled in order to derive non-equilibrium. Author
