Effect of Fuel-to-Oxidiser Ratio on Thrust Generation of a Hybrid Al + NaOH + H 2 O Propulsion System for CubeSat Applications

Abstract

The effect of fuel to oxidiser ratio on the thrust performance of a novel CubeSat propulsion system is presented in this paper. This propulsion system uses aluminium wool as fuel and a mixture of water and sodium hydroxide as oxidiser. The goal of the experiment is to determine the effect of fuel to oxidiser ratio on the thrust profile of the device, as… (More)
