Holographic investigation of solid propellant combustion in a two-dimensional motor.
MetadataShow full item record
This investigation continued the development of a method for obtaining high quality holograms of the combustion products from metallized solid rocket motor propellants burned in a two-dimensional motor to provide a cross-flow environment. The use of borosilicate side plates as a motor casing allowed good quality holograms to be obtained. With the present two-dimensional motor method there were upper limits of combustion pressure and weight percentage of aluminum where holograms could not be obtained because of excessive smoke opacity.

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; Kol, Jacob (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1985-07-01); NPS67-85-004CRThis 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 ...
