Abstract : Development of facilities for studies of high temperature decomposition of solid propellent ingredients are described, particularly as they pertain to use of the subject DoD Equipment Grant. Funding from the Grant was used for laboratory support equipment and peripheral equipment on existing experiments, but primarily for purchase of 1200 watt CO2 laser and related beam optics and support equipment. This apparatus will permit heating of ingredient samples at surface heat fluxes common in propellent combustion, involving temperature rise at the surface. Combustion research indicates that situations, giving considerable urgency to development of high rate situations, giving considerable urgency to development of high rate experiments. Keywords: Pyrolysis, Propellent, Combustion, High Temperature, Carbon dioxide laser.
