Revision of programs for thermal response, ablation and thermochemical equilibrium of charring materials.
The work consisted in the revision of two programs used in the design of grain and thermal lining of solid propellant rockets. They perform the calculation of thermodynamic and chemical state in the combustion chamber at the surface of an ablating charring material.
The Fortran code was enhanced in order to allow the solution of larger problems and a version for PC was also prepared.
