Abstract:

This program is concerned with determining the convective heat transfer characteristics of pyrogen igniters in both the aft-end and head-end configurations for three-pointed star and conocyl motor grains. Heat transfer modeling tests using thin-plate calorimetric techniques are being used to evaluate the heat transfer distributions. The second quarter effort was directed toward fabrication of the test sections for the model heat transfer experiments, procurement of the propellant grains for the demonstration motor test series, conducting of a majority of the tests for the experimental phase of the program, completion of the computer program changeover, and test data analysis.
