An experimental investigation of the combustion behavior in solid fuel ramjets was conducted. Light extinction measurements were employed to determine the effects of fuel composition and bypass ratio on the combustion efficiency and the percent and size of unburned carbon. Utility and limitations of the optical method are presented.
