Abstract:

Specific impulse calculations for a wide range of input concentrations are reported for atomic additives to solid hydrogen, combusted with liquid oxygen. These specific impulse values are presented in the form of 3D contour plots that reveal information about an entire region of interest. The output product species are also presented in this manner. These plots can be used to determine the optimum performance of any particular additive concentration and provide insight into how the performance level changes with concentration of the additive. temperature in the chamber, and exhaust product species....
