Ammonium perchlorate AP-binder sandwiches and a composite propellant were burned in a combustion bomb at various pressures. A schlieren system equipped with an argon laser was used to study the flame structure. High speed monochromatic motion pictures of solid propellant were taken during combustion, and ammonium perchlorate-binder interactions were investigated. The monochromatic pictures demonstrated that propellants without opacifiers cannot be effectively examined for surface interactions during combustion when using high intensity laser light.
