Abstract

In the paper the real oscillatory process is reproduced by statement of direct numerical experiment and the mechanism of occurrence and refill of low-frequency acoustic instability in the combustion chamber of the solid propellant rocket engine with the account of flight overload is investigated for the first time. The direct numerical modeling of low-frequency acoustic instability is carried out by means of Davydov’s method (method of large particles), which is well-suited for the solutions of many problems of mechanics of the continuous media. The results of numerical modeling are presented here. The hydrodynamic highly nonlinear nature of low-frequency fluctuations connected to structure and character of current in the combustion chamber of the rocket engine on firm fuel are proved to be true
