Special Issue “Hybrid Rocket (Volume II)”

The losses for commercial passenger aircrafts and spaceflight have decreased down to about one in ten million, whereas the loss rate for spaceflight has remained high, in the 1% range.

The Regression Rate-Based Preliminary Engineering Design of Hybrid Rocket Combustion System

The paper presents a useful engineering model for the design of preliminary hybrid rocket engines. This model involves the experimentally obtained equation regarding the speed of the burning



Hybrid Rockets as Post-Boost Stages and Kick Motors

Hybrid rockets are attractive as post-boost stages and kick motors due to their inherent safety and low cost, but it is not clear from previous research which oxidizer is most suitable for maximizing

Development of Green Storable Hybrid Rocket Propulsion Technology Using 98% Hydrogen Peroxide as Oxidizer

This paper presents the development of indigenous hybrid rocket technology, using 98% hydrogen peroxide as an oxidizer. Consecutive steps are presented, which started with interest in hydrogen

Passive Control of Low-Frequency Instability in Hybrid Rocket Combustion

The occurrence of low-frequency instability (LFI) appears to be related to multiple interactions among many complex physical processes, such as vortex shedding, boundary-layer oscillation, and

Nytrox as “Drop-in” Replacement for Gaseous Oxygen in SmallSat Hybrid Propulsion Systems

A medical grade nitrous oxide (N2O) and gaseous oxygen (GOX) “Nytrox” blend is investigated as a volumetrically-efficient replacement for GOX in SmallSat-scale hybrid propulsion systems. Combined
