The need for a storable, non-toxic and high energy hypergolic propellant points towards the combination of kerosene with hydrogen peroxide. Hypergolic ignition of almost any fueloxidizer combination can be obtained by gelling one of the liquids and adding the proper material. The rheological characteristics of gels enable the suspension of reactive or catalyst particles, uniformly distributed in the fuel, without compromising the energetic performance of the system. In the present research… CONTINUE READING
