Abstract : This work deals with the investigation of the combustion of solid, liquid, and water-filled systems in a field of inertial forces. The tests were conducted on a centrifuge with a radius of 4.5 cm at accelerations up to 2000 g. The samples were burned in a closed space at pressures up to 150 atm(tech.). The time of burning was determined by a pressure oscillogram. The solid composition investigated contained 15% rubber, 15% aluminum (particle dimensions up to 10 micrometers, and 70% ammonium perchlorate. The samples had a cross section area of 0.4 sq cm and a length from 0.5 to 1.5 cm.
