An extensive review of the literature on solid-propellant ignition was made to establish the state-of-the-art. Various ignition theories, experimental measurements, and ignition criteria were critically examined. The review was summarized in easy-to-read tabular form to facilitate comparison between various studies. The effects of important parameters on ignition processes were also discussed. Major technological gaps were identified and areas for future studies recommended.
