The dynamics of a combusting aluminum particle in a rocket flow environment are solved for and coupled to an acoustic model. The aluminum combustion model is constructed using a burn time expression developed by Beckstead et al. Acoustic damping by the particles is accounted for and the model results are examined for the effects of distributed combustion on the acoustics within a combustion chamber. With a forced transverse acoustic velocity, the model predicts substantially different acoustics for different distributed combustion velocity-coupled responses. The Velocity Coupled Distributed Combustion (VCDC) magnetic flowmeter provides this acoustic forcing and based on the predicted acoustics, will be able to measure the distributed combustion velocity-coupled response.
