Abstract:

A review was made of published reports and literature on insulation materials for sold rocket motors to establish the state of the art in theory, formulation, testing, and processing to establish the type of design data available and to provide an analysis of the available data. A major effort was made to obtain information on internal insulation materials. Performance data of internal insulation material from torch screening tests, plasma generators, subscale propellant test motors and full scale motor firings are presented. Significant performance data of nozzle insulation materials and external insulation materials are included. Physical and mechanical property data are shown for some nozzle and internal insulation materials.
