Abstract : The patent describes a device which measures the oscillatory combustion response of burning propellants (especially aluminized propellants) to imposition of incident pressure oscillations, and the damping rate of imposed oscillations (primarily due to damping by particles or droplets of condensed phase reaction products). The method uses artificially imposed oscillations to permit measurement of effect of oscillation with propellants that do not spontaneously produce oscillations.
