Abstract:

A short survey of gasdynamic lasers was made, and a study of advanced fuels for combustion-driven gasdynamic lasers was completed and published. The proper kinetic rate equations for HF chemical lasers were incorporated into the previously reported cold-flow Navier-Stokes solutions. These calculations introduce a new thirdgeneration of chemical laser analysis. Author
