A simplified combustion model, which is motivated by available performance studies on the diverging rocket reactor, has been used as basis for an engine performance evaluation. Comparison with conventional rocket configurations shows that an upper performance limit for the diverging reactor is comparable with performance estimates for engines using an adiabatic work cycle. Development of the diverging reactor for engine applications may, however, offer some advantages for very hot, high-energy, propellant systems.
