Two efforts are reported as a continuation and termination of previous work 1 modelling of the deflagration of ammonium-perchlorateAP-oxidized composite solid propellants, 2 measurements of linear-pyrolysis rates of pure and catalyzed AP. Modeling efforts led to development of a new comprehensive model of AP composite propellant burning. The model is termed the modified granular-diffusion-flame model. Linear pyrolysis experiments corroborated earlier data by another experimenter. New pyrolysis-rate measurements were made with catalyzed AP and with different radiometric wavelengths for surface-temperature measurement. Interpretation of these results was cut short by program termination. Author
