Abstract : Volume III gives information on the thermodynamic and thermophysical properties of the combustion products of eleven propellants, in which oxygen or air (including oxygen-enriched air) is used as the oxidizer. The authors obtained all the data reported by computation, according to the original methods and programs described in Volume 1/3/. The combustion products of the oxygen-based propellants described in this volume contain substances in the condensed state, and are complex heterogeneous systems. In many cases, in the calculation of their properties difficulties arise, mainly because of the limitations imposed by the Gibbs phase rule. Moreover, even in the simpler variants, when the parameters are determined in the throat section of the nozzle, we may find the following case which is difficult to compute: the transition through the sonic velocity takes place at the same time as its discontinuous change at the point of the beginning or termination of the liquid-solid phase transition. The second chapter of Volume III contains original hitherto unpublished methods for calculating complex heterogeneous equilibria.
