Antiproton annihilation propulsion by Robert L Forward ( )
3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Antiproton annihilation propulsion is a new form of space propulsion, where milligrams of antimatter are used to heat tons of reaction fluid to high temperatures. The hot reaction fluid is exhausted from a nozzle to produce high thrust at high specific impulse. This study was to determine the physical, engineering, and economic feasibility of antiproton annihilation propulsion. The conclusion of the study is that antiproton propulsion is feasible, but expensive. Because the low mass of the antimatter fuel more than compensates for its high price, comparative mission studies show that antimatter fuel can be cost effective in space, where even normal chemical fuel is expensive because its mass must be lifted into orbit before it can be used. Antiproton annihilation propulsion is mission enabling, in that it allows missions to be performed that cannot be performed by any other propulsion system.

Identification of exhaust species from the combustion of lm and lmh fuels by William Harvey McLain ( Book )
2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the second report of a twelve-month research program being conducted to study the metastable chemical species produced in boron fueled rocket plumes. Experimental studies of boron-fueled, air-augmented propellant systems indicate that metastable species are formed in the condensate fraction of the propellant stream. X-ray and differential scanning calorimetric analyses of the condensate fraction indicate the presence of one or more metastable intermediates. X-ray analysis shows a clearly defined crystallographic species exists in addition to the expected boron oxide and boron nitride. Differential scanning calorimetric analysis of the condensates formed during combustion of boron fuels show a relatively complex exothermic behavior between 298 and 1000 C. This indicates the presence of one or more species that have been quenched in a metastable condition. The infrared spectra of the plume emission for pentaborane fueled studies show chemiluminescence in the 5.3 - 5.8 micron region of the infrared. Similar chemiluminescence was not observed in the infrared for boron slurries, possibly indicating a different reaction mechanism. (Author)
