Theoretical performance of mixtures of liquid ammonia and hydrazine as fuel with liquid fluorine as oxidant for rocket engines

Description: Report presenting theoretical values of rocket performance parameters for two mixtures of liquid ammonia and hydrazine with flourine as oxidant for a variety of parameters. Parameters included are specific impulse, combustion chamber temperature, nozzle-exit temperature, equilibrium composition, mean molecular weight, characteristic velocity, coefficient of thrust, ratio of nozzle-exit area to throat area, specific heat at constant pressure, coefficient of viscosity, and coefficient of thermal conductivity.

Theoretical performance of liquid hydrazine and liquid fluorine as a rocket propellant

Description: From Summary: "Theoretical values of performance parameters for liquid ammonia and liquid fluorine as a rocket propellant were calculated on the assumption of equilibrium composition during the expansion process for a wide range of fuel-oxidant and expansion ratios. The parameters included were specific impulse, combustion-chamber temperature, nozzle-exit temperature, equilibrium composition, mean molecular weight, characteristic velocity, coefficient of thrust, ratio of nozzle-exit area to throat area, specific heat at constant pressure, coefficient of viscosity, and coefficient of thermal conductivity."
