Abstract : One dimensional kinetic calculations for hydrogen fluorine rocket nozzles predict slightly lower performance than corrected rocket firing data. The H + H + M = H2 + M recombination reaction has the most significant effect on nozzle performance and was found to be important for all the O/F (oxidizer wt/fuel wt) ratios investigated. The H + F + M = HF + M recombination reaction is important only at the higher O/F ratios. HF is the most important third body with regard to nozzle performance. Chlorine addition can significantly improve nozzle performance at the higher O/F ratios. (Author)
