For future airbreathing and rocket propulsion systems gelled propellants can be a promising replacement for conventional propellants. Especially for rocket engines, the application of a gelled fuel and gelled oxidizer can combine the advantages of conventional solid and liquid propellants without taking into account the specific disadvantages of both individual systems. The present publication describes the rheological behavior of gelled JP-8 turbine fuel and gelled rocket propellant RP-1, whereas fumed silica as a gelling agent has been used. Alongside the determination of an optimal mixing process, the rheological parameters of the investigated gelled hydrocarbon fuels showed a significant influence of the added amount of silica in comparison to the ungelled pure liquids.
