Title

Aerosol Characterization in Rocket Plumes

Abstract

Aerosols concentration and size distribution in the atmospheric exhaust plumes of two Space Shuttle rockets and one Titan IV rocket were measured. Using a two component aerosol sampling system carried aboard a WB-57F aircraft. Real time particulate counter provides concentration and size distribution in a window covering 0.34 to 4 μm at 1 Hz sampling rate and grab-tank sampling system provides particulate size distribution in a window covering 0.01 to 0.4 μm.
