Abstract : An experimental investigation of the internal ballistics of solid fuel ramjets was conducted in order to determine the regression rate of the fuel as a function of chamber pressure, inlet air temperature, and air flux rate, and to model the flow in solid fuel ramjets which use sudden expansion flame-holders at the inlet. In addition, flame stabilization limits were investigated. A computer solution for the non-reacting flow field gave results in good agreement with experiments. (Modified author abstract)
