Abstract
THE SOLID FUEL RAMJET (SFRJ) IS CURRENTLY BEING CONSIDERED AS A PROPULSION DEVICE FOR A NUMBER OF AIR FORCE TACTICAL APPLICATIONS. THE PROPOSED PHASE I WORK WILL BE AN EXPLORATORY DEVELOPMENT EFFORT IN THE FOLLOWING AREA TO EVALUATE WHICH OF THE CONCEPTS ARE WORTHY OF FURTHER DEVELOPMENT UNDER PHASE II, CONSIDERING THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE AIR FORCE MISSION FOR THE SOLID FUEL RAMJET. (A) ALTERNATE FUELS WILL BE EVALUATED WHICH HAVE ATTRACTIVE POTENTIAL PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS FOR BOTH VOLUME LIMITED AND WEIGHT LIMITED APPLICA- TIONS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL EVALUATE THE PRACTICABILITY OF EFFECIENT COMBUSTION OF THESE FUELS (B) BOTH ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL METHODS WILL BE EVALUATED FOR ADDITIONAL COMBUSTION CHARACTERIZATION OF GRAIN REGRESSION RATE VERSUS PRESSURE, ETC. FOR EXISTING SOLID FUELS AND GRAIN DESIGNS; (C) VARIOUS INNOVATIVE IDEAS WILL BE EVALUATED TO DETERMINE PRACTICAL METHODS OF FUEL FLOW CONTROL DURING COMBUSTION, AND \OR PRACTICAL METHODS OF VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL TO PERMIT OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE.
