Abstract:

Most solid rocket motor propellants contain metal additives which increase the energy content of the system and also suppress combustion pressure instabilities. The presence of these metal additives, however, results in condensed products in the exhaust which can do no expansion work and thereby reduce the effectiveness of the nozzle. Also, the presence of liquid or solid particles in the exhaust will contribute significantly to radiation and plume impingement heating on structures which are either immersed or in proximity to the exhaust plume. It is therefore important to know the physical properties of both the solids and gases throughout the nozzle and exhaust plumes. This report describes two computer programs which are applicable to the analysis of chemically reacting gas-particle flow fields.
