MetadataShow full item record
An experimental investigation of the combustion behavior in solid fuel ramjets was conducted. Light extinction measurements were employed to determine the effects of fuel composition and bypass ratio on the combustion efficiency and the percent and size of unburned carbon. Utility and limitations of the optical method are presented.

Goodwin, William Vernon (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1981-06);An experimental investigation was conducted into four areas of the solid fuel ramjet combustion process: (1) the effects of near-wall turbulent mixing and equivalence ratio on combustion efficiency, (2) the effects of ...
Chozev, Yair (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1985-07-01); NPS-67-85-004CRThis paper presents a summary of the experimental results and studies of magnesium combustion in steam. The major subject of these studies was to measure the temperature of magnesium particles after the particles had been ...
