Abstract

A Knowledge of the role of condensed phase reactions vis-a-vis gas phase reactions in the combustion of a propellant is essential in formulating models for combustion. The salient features of the role of condensed phase reactions in the combustion of solid composite propellants have recently been reviewed by Kishore.1 Briefly, in the case of polystyrene (PS)/ammonium perchlorate (AP) propellants it was inferred from the earlier studies that condensed phase reactions contribute significantly to the total combustion process at ambient pressure.
