Influence of the composition and ionizing radiation on the stability of combustion of composite propellants
- 45 Downloads
The results of an experimental study of the acoustic admittance of the burning surface of composite propellants performed with the use of a two-end combustion chamber (T-chamber) are presented. The effects of the composition of the composite propellant (type of fuel-binder, content of aluminum powder, burning rate catalysts) and of ionizing γ-radiation on the acoustic admittance, which characterizes the tendency of the combustion chamber to high-frequency instability, are analyzed.
