In solid rocket motors (SRM) used for space propulsion, such as Ariane 5, aluminum is frequently used as a propellant additive to increase specific impulse. However, its combustion produces aluminum oxide residues that are carried away by the flow field. Thus, physical modeling of aerodynamic flows in SRM should account for this condensed phase. In the frame of full Eulerian approach, unsteady compressible Navier-Stokes equations are solved for both phases. However, numerical simulations performed on a simple axisymmetric motor have pointed out a flaw of the basic Eulerian approach. Indeed, the variance of the particle velocity distribution is not accounted for, leading to unrealistic accumulations of particles in some specific flow region. Hence, we have developed an advanced Eulerian model to correct this shortcoming, which is presented in this paper.
