Abstract

This paper is concerned with the prediction of the pressure history during the process of flame-spreading and combustion of solid-propellant grains as would occur, for example in a gun cartridge. Solution of the governing conservation equations for the two-phase media requires the use of empirical relations to account for the physical processes of momentum and energy interaction between the solid grains and hot propellant gas. The results indicate the extreme importance of these interaction relations on the predictions of the pressure and velocity field.
