Antiproton annihilation propulsion by Robert L Forward ( )
4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 12 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.

Accident management orientation guide by D. K Shaver ( Book )
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A strategy has been developed for systematically addressing and handling the hazards posed by a transportation accident involving hazardous materials. The Accident Management Orientation Guide presents this system as a logic sequence of events in a color-coded, programmed learning approach. The management of a transportation accident involves many emergency response personnel making complex decisions affecting not only mitigation of on-scene hazards but also the safety of exposed civilians, emergency response personnel, property and the environment. Since emergency response operations can be broken down into a fairly logical sequence of events involving major decision points, a decision flow diagram has been constructed. Each sequence has a series of situations, decision options, specific actions, potential outcomes, and risks associated with the management of the overall accident response. Information necessary for consideration in making optimal decisions is provided for each decision sequence. This unique approach to accident management was developed to address all aspects and events following a transportation accident. It further provides the basis for software and audio-visual development for future Air Force training, planning and preparedness programs

Development, application, and design specifications of a laser doppler particle sensor for the measurement of particle velocities in two phase rocket exhausts, volume I by Stanford University ( Book )
2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this report, the development of a prototype instrument to measure the velocity of particles in the exhaust of a solid rocket motor is described. The measurement technique is based upon the doppler-shifted scattering of a focused laser beam by the particle matter in a flow. The absolute value of frequency is converted into velocity information by a Fabry Perot interferometer, photomultiplier, electronic signal processing circuits and a suitable recording device. The recorded data is in the form of signal number count rate and maximum signal amplitude as a function of velocity at a specific point in the flow. This volume describes the development of the prototype instrument. (Author)

Stability Prediction for Solid Propellant Rocket Motors with High Speed Mean Flow by G. A Flandro ( Book )
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Current stability prediction calculations for solid propellant rocket motors are based upon a simple first-order perturbation solution which assumes an incompressible chamber mean flow. Since combustion instability is frequently observed in motors with large length-to-diameter and low port-to-throat area ratios, there is concern that the standard stability techniques should be extended to apply to cases where high-speed mean flows are present. This report shows how the basic stability analysis can be extended by carrying additional terms in the perturbation expansions. Compressibility affects the calculations in several ways. The acoustic mode shapes predicted in the linear model are distorted and the mean thermodynamic properties may vary significantly from point to point in the chamber. These variations and distortions alter both the predicted growth rates and also the frequencies for the acoustic modes. Detailed calculations are carried out for a cylindrical grain geometry with longitudinal wave motions. Frequency and growth rate corrections grow quadratically with increases in the port length-to-diameter ratio. Frequency shifts of as much as 30 percent of the linear acoustic frequency predictions may be expected in high L/D motors. (Author)
Handbook of Recommended Practices for the Determination of Liquid Monopropellant Rocket Engine Performance by R. A Bjorklund ( Book )
1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This handbook is intended to serve as a guide for the experienced test engineer in the design, installation, and operation of systems to be used for the direct measurement of those quantities which are of fundamental importance to the determination of monopropellant thruster performance. The procedures and defining relations for reducing the measurements to performance parameters are also given. This handbook is composed of six discrete sections pertaining to force and impulse measurement, propellant mass usage and flow measurement, pressure measurement, temperature measurement, exhaust gas composition measurement, and data reduction and performance determination. References, appendixes, and glossaries are included with each section as necessary. (Author)
