A computer program is presented for the computation of chemical equilibrium reaction products associated with gun propellant combustion. The program as developed at the Air Force Armament Laboratory was based on a code used by the NASA Lewis Research Center. The program provides a first approximation of flame temperature, specific heat ratio, impetus, and mean molecular weight of the combustion products. A simplified users manual is presented for thermochemical programs and for the program to generate specific heat polynomials from JANAF tabular data.
