Abstract:

An experimental investigation of the combustion behavior in solid fuel ramjets was conducted. Optical light extinction measurements were employed to determine the effects of fuel composition and bypass ratio on the combustion efficiency, percent and size of unburned carbon, and fuel regression rate. Utility and limitations of the optical method are presented. Author
