Abstract
The ignition and combustion characteristics of nitrate ester plasticized polyether (NEPE) propellant in different oxygen concentrations ambient gases were studied by the application of CO2 laser, infrared thermometer and high speed camera. The flame intensity data of the propellant was collected by the photodiode; propellant flame temperature was measured by infrared thermometer. The experimental results show that the time which NEPE propellant spend to be stable combustion will get shorter with the increase of oxygen concentration; the flame peak temperature measured by infrared thermometer increases with the increase of oxygen concentration when the oxygen concentration is less than 30% by volume, then decreases with the increase of oxygen concentration.
