Abstract:

This project concerns assembly, synthesis and comprehensive presentation of information on combustion instability in solid rockets, in the form of a reference book. The format is chosen to make the book suitable for a wide audience of readers including propulsion program managers, motor designers, propellant chemists, test engineers, and combustion specialists. The diversity of audience is accommodated by opening with general introductory chapters for nonspecialist, with progression into more applied issues, such as experimental methods and remedial measures. All chapters open with Introductions that give a relatively non-technical statement of the problem and content, and end with a qualitative summary of what was done in the chapter. An extensive bibliography is included, and supplemented by a more complete, computer-based bibliography with search-retrieval capability.
