An analysis has been performed to formulate an aerothermochemical model for the combustion of solid rocket propellants in the presence of erosion. A two-dimensional Iaminar boundary layer analysis has been used to describe the flow, temperature, and concentration fields in the gas phase adjacent to the solid surface. The temperature dependence of the gas-phase reaction
rate constant and of the solid pyrolysis have been described by Arrhenius expressions. A parallel investigation has been conducted to study the mechanisms of the chemical reactions involved with the burning of nitrocellulose type propellants.
