An extensive review of the literature on solid-propellant ignition has been made to establish the state of the art. Various ignition theories, experimental measurements, and ignition criteria are critically examined. The review is summarized in an easy-to-read tabular form to facilitate comparison between various studies. The effects of important parameters on ignition processes are also discussed. Major technological gaps are identified, and areas for future studies are recommended.
