Abstract

This paper is a report of work in progress, part of the Caltech MURI Program: Novel Energetic Materials to Stabilize Rocket Motors. The primary technical objective of the MURI Program is to understand the connections between propellant composition and chemistry, and the dynamical behavior observed in solid propellant rocket motors. Here we are concerned with the theoretical framework in which chamber dynamics are investigated; and certain aspects of combustion dynamics represented by the response function which is ultimately the macroscopic realization of the propellant chemistry and combustion. Some results are given to illustrate possible influences of the frequency spectrum of the response function on linear and nonlinear motions in a solid rocket. A simple model is described which is extended eventually to provide a way to model phenomenologically some of the observed characteristics of the combustion dynamics of a burning solid propellant.
