Abstract : The purpose of his research was to study the ignition of composite solid propellants in a small rocket motor. Hot gaseous products from a small gas-fed pyrogen-type igniter supplied a convective ignition stimulus to the internal surface of a thin-webbed, cylindrical solid propellant grain. The gas rocked igniter is a valuable tool for investigating the essenial naure of the igniion process because it offers a wide range of controllable parameters such as heat transfer, chemical reactiviy of the igniting gas, flame temperature, mass flow, chamber pressure and solid propellant composition.
