Abstract:

This book has several purposes, including a broad historical summary of combustion instabilities in propulsion systems a concise compilation of the main mechanisms for instabilities in liquid and solid fueled rockets, ramjets, thrust augmentors and gas turbines development of a theoretical framework for investigating unsteady motions in combustion systems and accessible surveys of the basic material required to understand the subject. Emphasis is placed throughout the book on observed behavior. For well-understood reasons, the best, and in many respects most useful quantitative data, have been obtained for solid propellant rockets. Hence that type of device occupies a special position in the subject. The book comprises nine chapters and eight annexes. Material in the annexes is not essential for reading and broadly understanding the main part of the book, but is likely interesting for those choosing to do research on the subject. The nine chapters divide into three parts.

Subject Categories:
