Abstract : The research program was concerned with the determination of those dimensionless parameters that may be employed as criteria for predicting the stability of combustion in a thrust chamber. These dimensionless parameters are related to physical and chemical variables which are available to the design engineer. Both analytical and experimental work were performed to enable the prediction of combustion pressure oscillations and, therefore, avoid them in actual rocket engine design. (Author)
