Abstract : Theoretical and experimental investigations of the detonation characteristics of solid composite propellant rocket-motor grains are described. Statistical variance in critical-diameter data was determined for an RDX- adulterated AP-PBAN propellant. Preparations for a large critical-diameter test, involving unadulterated AP-PBAN propellant, are discussed.
