Detonation and Burning Characteristics of Liquid Oxygen-Liquid Methane Mixtures
Liquid monopropellants are potentially very attractive for application to low cost boosters H. In order to realize this potential, however, a monopropellant must be found which is sufficiently energetic to be competitive from a performance standpoint, but yet stable enough to allow safe handling and usage.
