Abstract:

A program of work was conducted in order to measure the effects of oscillatory pressure and velocity at a frequency of 800 Hz upon the burning rate of ANB 3066. The burning rate was measured using a microwave interferometer method and also calculated from the pressuretime records of T-burner and KT-motor firings. An empirical relationship was derived which describes the burning rate under oscillatory and non-oscillatory conditions in terms of the average Mach number, the oscillatory pressure and the mean pressure at the propellant surface.
