Abstract : A thixotropic rocket fuel composed of monomethylhydrazine, metallic fuel particles, dimethylurea, and a gellant. The particular thixotropic fuel is particularly characterized by the fact that a low gellant concentration can be used and by the fact that the metallic fuel particles can be suspended with no separation or settling out of the metallic fuel particles in the fuel even when subjected to 500 g's. The particular thixotropic rocket fuel has high density quality and high specific impulse values. (Author)
