Abstract : During the period of this report efforts continued with the making of differential thermal analysis (DTA) runs at various heating rates on ammonium perchlorate (AP) samples, where the samples were of various particle size, shape and either pure or contained selected additives. A total of 108 DTA plots were made either on new specimens or for rechecking values recorded in Quarterly Report No. 2. The experimental techniques and equipment used were the same as described in the previous report, except that for the mixing of very fine glass beads with the AP material. By using a smaller AP sample, the heat changes of the sample reaction do not influence the results as markedly and hence allow the temperature measuring devices to more accurately indicate the true temperature being experienced by the sample.
