Abstract : The report describes an experimental facility for the determination of the global combustion rates associated with the secondary combustion of an air-augmented propellant. The experimental method utilized a combustor in which a substantially premixed flow of particulate boron and air ignited and burned in a constant area duct. An optical system was designed for measurements of gas and particle temperatures at different axial positions along the duct. Instrumentation was also provided for measurements of the pressures and flow rates required for the formulation of a global combustion model. (Author)
