The purpose is to study the interdependence of combustion processes and the physico-mechanical behavior of solid fuel materials within the context of a rocket engine system. It is intended to capitalize upon a quantitative understanding of molecular structure, which affects both the combustion and mechanics behavior, and treat the propellant fuel and associated inert components as materials system--from processing, to a determination of the constitutive equation as needed to assess structural integrity, and failure under various environmental and loading conditions. Concurrently, several tasks are concerned with propellant as an energy source--from ignition through burning, gas dynamics, interaction with nozzle and insulation components, and consideration of electron noise and radar attenuation in the plume.
