Abstract : An analytical study on the influence of chemical kinetics on the combustion of liquid bipropellant in droplets was made. The influence of chemical kinetics on premixed and diffusion spherico-symmetrical flames was studied. A research facility was constructed and experiments were carried out in order to study the influence of pressure and temperature of the surrounding atmosphere on solid propellant combustion. A theoretical study on the influence of heat losses and radical diffusion on the structure of premixed flames was carried out. A criterion for the validity of the steady state assumption for radical concentration was obtained. And, in order to study the influence of chemical kinetics on laminar diffusion flames, their external and internal structures were analyzed. As a result, a criterion for flame extinction was obtained. (Author)
