Abstract: 

Some properties of n-paraffins for rocket fuel and the physical mechanism of structure changing for such systems during initial stage of its burning are investigated. We propose a new element of the construction of hybrid rockets engine for intensification of fuel dispersion and for prevention of the threat’s explosion. The active centre’s influence on the burning speed in a stream and n-paraffin’s flame height are obtained.

Keywords: dispersion, n-paraffins, rocket fuel
