Rocket Propellants as an Efficient Energetic Material

Garima Tripathi


Rocket propellant is either a high oxygen containing fuel or a mixture of fuel plus oxidant,
whose combustion takes place, in a definite and controlled manner with the evolution of a huge
volume of gas. In the rocket engine, the propellant is burnt in the combustion chamber and the
hot jet of gases (usually at very high pressures, with combustion temperatures approaching
3000K) escapes through the nozzle at very high velocity.

Keywords: rocket propellant, rocket engine, high velocity, fuel, oxidant
