Design and Performance Analysis of Aluminized Sugar Aided Rocket Propulsion Using MATLAB

M. Pavan Kumar [2] | Sanjeev. G. Palekar


Abstract: The field of rocketry is one of the booming and challenging industry today. The developments in rocket propulsion is finding an enormous development in the present scenario for its full application. The design of a solid rocket motor involves a plenty of equations, which makes it a complex phenomenon. This work uses MATLAB to stimulate the ideal equations which governs the performance of the solid rocket motor and help improving the same performance before it is been considered for production. This helps in understanding the working of of the rocket along with the reduced cost and operating damages/explosion. This work deals with the study of propellant with inclusion of aluminium which acts as a metal fuel along with the basic potassium nitrate and sucrose which is used as basic propellant in several rocketry experiments. The inclusion of aluminium shows a agreeable increase in specific impulse and thrust co-efficient. The specific impulse is found to be 184.9 Sec with the thrust co-efficient of 2.1.
