A new laboratory express-method of determining the specific impulse of solid propellants based on the measurement of the reactive force of gasification products escaping from the burning propellant surface is presented in this work. The values of the specific impulse for a model composite solid propellant by varying the pressure in the combustion chamber are determined.
