Abstract:

This article introduces two predictive algorithms for the performance of solid propellant rocket motor. The emphasis is on the introduction of Time-Space Algorithm. The authors proposed a general two-dimensional grain calculation procedure in order to conduct the grain calculations. Therefore, the predictive algorithms for performance introduced by this article show generality. A comprehensive computer program for the aforementioned method has been written and applied to calculating the performance of three different solid rocket motors. The calculated results are consistent with those derived from experimental data.
