Abstract : To estimate the response of gun propellants at higher rates than can be easily reached within the laboratory, stress relaxation measurements have been made in compression for single- (M14), double- (JA2), and triple-based (M30) propellants, as well as a nitramine composite (M43) gun propellant, over the temperature range of -40 to 60 degrees celcius. Master curves were generated and shift factors were calculated which were used to determine the time- temperature shift factors for each of the propellants over these temperatures.
