Abstract:

A study was made concerning methods for measuring the mechanical properties of composite solid propellant, and for analyzing the response behavior for values essential to stress analysis. Theoretical and experimental stress analysis were performed on simple tubular grains to establish failure criteria, and develop a method of integrating such experimental and theoretical processes with the grain design and propellant development functions to give an optimum method of grain design for reliable solid propellant motors.
