Abstract:

The Objective of the research was to elucidate the physical and chemical factors that control ignition of double base propellants. Detailed experimental and analytical investigations were conducted to understand the ignition processes that occur at and near the propellant surface, to determine the connection between the ignitability of a propellant and its other combustion characteristics, to quantify the peculiarities of radiative ignition in comparison with hot gas ignition, and to develop a means of ranking propellant ignitability. As a result of these investigations, radiative ignition processes have been explained for a wide variety of propellant and test conditions.
