Transonic thermal blooming
(Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, 1976-03)
According to the linearized solutions for thermal blooming, the density perturbations become infinite (i.e. "catastrophic" defocusing) as the Mach number approaches unity. However, the nonlinearities in the transonic ...
An investigation of the effect of acceleration on the burning rate of composite propellants
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1966-08); NPS-57RV7071A
The average burning rates of composite solid rocket propellant were measured in acceleration fields up to 2000 times the standard acceleration of gravity. The acceleration vector was perpendicular to and into the burning ...
