Limited experimental data indicated that fuel vapor composition within the SFRJ combustor may have a significant effect on the obtainable combustion efficiency and upon the dependence of combustion upon equivalence ratio and air mass flow rate. Combustor pressure oscillations in bypass operation were found to increase regression rates when using PMM fuel grains and to increase or decrease combustion efficiency depending upon equivalence ratio.

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 ...
