Detailed Description

577 pgs, 1995, AIAA
ISBN 978-1563471834

In first book on subject since 1972, experts cover four major subject areas: engine phenomenology, fundamental mechanisms, analysis, and testing. Includes technical information from Russia and China. A result of a concerted effort by a core group of workers active in the field who believed there was a distinct need for more effective communication and an organized effort to deal with the technological problems associated with liquid rocket engine combustion instability.

Designed foremost to be a useful reference. Although it is tailored specifically to liquid rocket combustion instability, much of the material can also be applied to other types of liquid-fueled propulsion systems such as ramjets, gas turbine engines, diesel engines, and liquid-propellant guns. Since no book on unsteady combustion of liquid-fueled systems has been published as a research monograph in the past 20 years, with the exception of a few distantly related volumes on solid propellant combustion, workers in these areas may also find the volume useful and relevant.
