The Combustion of Hydrocarbons with Nitric Acid at High Pressure
NAVAL WEAPONS CENTER CHINA LAKE CA
Pagination or Media Count:
A slightly modified Technoproducts instrumented Olin-Mathieson drop- weight tester has been used to study the combustion of liquid hydrocarbon fuels with nitric acid at high pressure. The effects of the following variables on ignition and the magnitude and reproducibility of the burning rate are discussed 1 impact energy, 2 carbon number of n-alkanes, 3 oxidizerfuel ratio, 4 hydrocarbon structure, 5 binary fuel mixture composition, and 6 acid concentration.
