Abstract:

The most significant findings of the research program were 1 Mechanical properties were interrelated by path-independent equations based on strain-energy-time functions 2 an empirical failure envelope of log WTTsub o vs. log ta sub T was found to be pathindependent 3 data taken at various humidity levels could be handled similarly to data taken at various temperatures 4 it was found that propellant behavior could be described by equations from finite elastic theory 5 results suggest that a criterion for uniaxial failure in a propellant of high solids content is a minimum lateral area governed by maximum packing density.
