Abstract:

An experimental study of the condensation of gases in expansion flow fields was conducted under the auspices of the AFRPL CONSET Program. Pure gas expansions, as well as binary and ternary gas mixture expansions and the plume of a monopropellant hydrazine thruster were studied. Laser-Rayleigh and laser-Raman scattering, mass spectrometric sampling, and electron beam fluorescence were used as nonperturbing flow diagnostics. This report summarizes results of these experiments.
