Abstract

The results of a calculation of the rate of transient combustion of gunpowder during a fall in pressure are presented; these are obtained by the numerical integration of the equations of transient-combustion theory, allowing for the variable surface temperature of the k phase. For rapid and severe pressure drops extinction always occurs, no introduction of special extinction conditions being required. The change in the rate of burning during the extinction process is of a smooth nature.
