A non-steady model for the combustion of ammonium perchlorate composite propellants has been developed in order to be incorporated into a comprehensive gasdynamics model of solid rocket motor flow fields. The model including the heterogeneous combustion and turbulence mechanisms is applied to nonlinear combustion instability analyses. This paper describes the essential mechanisms and features of the model and discusses the methodology of non-steady calculations of the combustion instabilities of solid rocket motors.
