Abstract:

Design studies were begun of the aft dome section of the Polaris A-3 rocket motor case with the following objectives 1 analyze the magnitude of stresses and stress distribution around the port openings 2 determine structural requirements for port reinforcement and design optimum reinforcement for the stress pattern 3 investigate use of a more ductile type of Al alloy for aft cluster fitting 4 analyze shape of aft cluster and recommend shape which will reduce bending stress under pressure to a minimum and 5 develop optimum flexible bond between Al cluster fitting and fiber glass chamber. Theoretical computations were made of stresses at port openings. Author
