Abstract : A study was undertaken relative to the melt-pour of type 1 (75/25) octol, for the HE warhead M250 (Chaparral). It was desired to pinpoint and correct cavitation defects (which occurred periodically) by means of an examination of operations and lot characteristics. The parameters involved analytical, viscosity, and particle size distribution data.
