Abstract : The objective is to investigate the mechanism of action of burning rate catalysts in the ignition and combustion of double-base propellants. Experimentally, the surface temperatures of burning propellant strands are measured and chemical-kinetic investigations of the products of degradation of the regressing surface are carried out. Heat is supplied by an arc image furnace for the ignition studies. (Author)
