Abstract

Gelled propellants can be a promising replacement for next generation propulsion systems. For rocket engine operation, the application of a gelled fuel and gelled oxidizer can combine the advantages of liquid propellants (e.g., high performance, throttled operation, and multiple starts) without many of the specific disadvantages of the individual systems. A study is presented that describes the rheological behavior of gelled JP-8 turbine fuel and gelled rocket propellant RP-1 when fumed silica is used as a gelling agent. Along with the determination of an optimal gel mixing process, gel stability and rheological parameters showed a significant dependence on the added silica amount.
