Abstract
The influence of longitudinal combustion instability on the gross behavior of solid propellant rocket motors has been studied at CARDE. From pressure recordings, it was inferred that traveling gaseous compression waves were associated with the instability. Optical techniques were applied to studies of the unsteady flow field, the combustion processes, and the regions of interaction. Asemiquantitative description of the gross aspects of the internal flow field is provided, and optical results clearly show the propagating shock front.
