Abstract:

The spectral characteristics of high temperature Hybaline B-3 fueled combustion reactions are reported. Data were obtained for Hybaline B-3 augmented hydrogen-oxygen, deuterium-oxygen, acetylene-oxygen, and air diffusion flames under conditions simulating rocket test firings. Major features of the emission spectra are outlined for the ultraviolet, visible, and infrared regions. Sufficient specific emission is available to indicate the feasibility of determining changes in the species concentrations and flame temperatures as functions of changes in OF ratios and other major rocket parameters.
