Erosive burning of complex configuration of solid propellant grains

By S Subrahmanyam and GK Moorthy


The paper studies the features of the erosive burning of complex configurations of solid propellant grains and their influence on the performance of a solid rocket motor. The mathematical treatment of erosive combustion covers the spectrum of eddy sizes, the spectrum of eddy lengths, the effect of configuration on eddy spectrum and frequencies, and the total kinetic energy. The essential features of the Levich model, the Higbie model, and the Danckwests model for mass transfer calculations are compared. The wagon-wheel pattern is chosen as an example. Heat and mass transfer results for a six-pointed wagon wheel are presented
