Abstract:

A time-dependent Monte Carlo computer code which simulates the far-field interaction between a rocket exhaust plume and an ambient flowing gas was developed. Computer calculations were carried out for a rocket motor firing in both continuous and pulsed modes. The pulsed mode calculations employed the Baum, Kolb, Rieger, and Sutton Radiation Model for the atomic physics of the H2O molecule, which provides estimates of radiant flux from the interaction region.
