dc.description.abstract An effort was made to obtain further correlation between theoretical and experimental results for continuous Lorentz force acceleration of a partially ionized gas. Four different nozzle-accelerator combinations were evaluated in the course of the research, with considerable differences in the performance of the various designs. In general, however, significant increases in the mass specific impulses and efficiencies were obtained when continuous crossed electric and magnetic fields were used to accelerate the partially ionized gas.
