Abstract:

The results and conclusions of an experimental and theoretical research study of solid propellant dynamic response and failure behavior are presented. Experimentally verified analytic methods for treatment of propellant thermorheological response to vibration are described. Multiaxial failure criteria data for PBAN and PBAA propellants are tabulated and analyzed. Propellant crack propagation and fatigue failure experiments and analysis are described. Nonlinear propellant response theory and experimentation studies are reported. Methods for design of propellant solids systems for control of processing, ultimate and burn rate properties are described. Author
