Abstract : A comprehensive method for analyzing liquid rocket engine combustion is introduced, which utilizes and unifies the results of analytical and experimental research in the fields of liquid propellant injection and combustion. A system of 3-dimensional, time-dependent, nonlinear conservation equations is derived and the necessary expressions for bipropellant spray mass distributions, drop size, drop velocities, spray evaporation, and interphase drag are presented. Specialized application of the general model to the analysis of ablative chamber compatibility is summarized and illustrated. Another application, research for improvement of relations for the interphase coupling processes, is outlined. (Author)
