Burning: Selectively darkening part of a photo with an image editing program.
Erosive Burning: Increased burning rate in solids and hybrids created by the action of high velocity gases.
Burning Rate: In solids, the rate at which the burning surface recedes as it combusts. Affected by pressure, temperature and the scrubbing of hot gases.
Yield Burning: The advantage gained by purchasing convertible securities instead of common stock, which equals the difference between the rates of return of the convertible security and the common shares.
Burning In: Repairing a finish by melting stick shellac into the damaged places by using a heated knife blade or iron.
Liner: An insulated sleeve made from phenolic, EPDM, fiberglass, impregnated cardboard, or any number of materials which protects the combustion chamber while the motor is burning.
End Burner: A 'cigarette burning' grain inhibited or case bonded on the external surface burning only on its face.
Inhibit: Bonding non-propellant material to restrict the burning surface of a propellant grain.
Burn Area: The actively burning surface of a rocket grain, either solid or hybrid.
Bates Grain: Tubular grain uninhibited on the ends which can provide a nearly neutral burning characteristic (BAtch TESt motor).
