The recent work of H. S. Tsien concerning the servostabilization of rocket motors is extended to the liquid bipropellant rocket motor. It is shown that by use of a feedback system containing a device to sense the combustion chamber pressure, a suitably designed amplifier, and a servomechanism which governs the propellant How, the low-frequency oscillations which occur in the rocket configuration may be stabilized for any value of combustion time lag. A method is given for determining a transfer function of the feedback loop which will assure stable operation. The technique of the Satche diagram is employed in stability analysis.
