The Three-Dimensional Combustion of Heterogeneous PropellantsA numerical framework is described which permits the calculation of the 3-D combustion field supported by a heterogeneous propellant, allowing for complete coupling between the condensed phase physics, the gas-phase physics, and the unsteady, uneven, regressing surface. A random packing algorithm is used to construct models of ammonium-perchlorate in hydroxyl-terminated-polybutadiene propellants which mimic experimental propellants designed by R. Miller, and these are numerically burnt. Mean burning rates are compared with experimental data for four packs, over a pressure range of 7-200atm.
