Combustion of energetic solids is the basis of rocket propulsion for space exploration and military technologies. Accurate models of combustion that contain chemical and fluid-mechanical details are greatly needed because atmospheric contamination and cost considerations limit ground-based testing. International disarmament treaties mandate disposal of stockpiled energetic materials. However, conventional disposal methods, such as open-pit burning and detonation, are increasingly restricted by environmental regulations. Description of the gaseous emission products frequently must be given before combustion is authorized. Manipulation of the combustion process may be necessary. Hence, combustion processes must be understood and predicted with ever greater accuracy.
