Possible mechanism of nonsteady-state erosion combustion of composite solid propellants

  • L. K. Gusachenko
  • V. E. Zarko


It has been demonstrated that in the combustion of composite solid propellants the instantaneous mass burning rate can depend on variations in the velocity of cross-flow of gases even if in the steady-state regime the combustion is insentitive to cross-flow velocity. A method has been proposed for studying the nonsteady-state erosion combustion in experiments with composite systems.
