Abstract : The response of several selected composite propellants subjected to surface heat fluxes was experimentally studied. The surface propellant samples were subjected to thermal-radiation heat fluxes from 1 to 13.5 cal/sec sq cm and convective heat fluxes from 30 to 100 cal/sec sq cm. Parallel theoretical studies, which were guided by the experimental results, have given a satisfactory explanation of the general character of the ignition process. The scope of this research work has been broadened to include several phases of the combustion of solid propellants.
