Abstract:

The objective of the program was the development of designs, fabrication processes, techniques and equipment for manufacture of fiberglass plastic rocket motor cases. Under Thiokol guidance, case designs and manufacturing methods were established for both monolithic and modular construction of large 44- and 65-in. dia plastic cases. Design included derivation of dome contours, stress analysis of case assemblies and components, and specification of fiberglass, resin systems, case liners, hardware, and mandrels.
