Abstract:

A phenomenon observed during plume diagnostic measurements acquired during simulated altitude chamber tests of aluminum-loaded solid-propellant rocket motors is discussed, and analytical results are presented. The results of a line-by-line calculation of the aluminum chloride AlCl feature are discussed and compared with high-resolution ultraviolet UV spectral data.
