Abstract:

The general trend in rocket propulsion in the US has been geared towards performance, cost and multi-mission capability. The developing trends have begun to appear in the areas of hazards mitigation in our munitions. This has led to a focus on increasing performance without increasing susceptibility to external input such as fire or shock. Therefore there has been an interest in the underlying principals of rocket propulsion focusing on the detailed mechanics of combustion and IM response, leading to an increase in modeling focused programs.
