Distinctive features of the intrachamber instability of combustion in liquid-propellant rocket engines

  • V. V. Gotsulenko


Self-oscillations and certain of their regularities determined by solution of a degenerate system of differential equations that is used in considering combustion instability in combustion chambers of liquid-propellant rocket engines are modeled mathematically.
