Abstract:

The ignition performance of compositions SR371C and SR44 in two types of containers was examined in a test vessel. It was found that igniters containing composition SR44 had lower ignition delay times and maximum pressures than those with composition SR371C. It is recommended that further investigations be conducted to determine the minimum mass of composition SR44 required to ignite a given rocket motors.
