Abstract:

This memorandum discusses alloys used for motor cases for 21 solid- propellant and four liquid-propellant missiles of the tactical type. The factors involved in the choice of higher strength steels for solid-propellant motor cases are discussed, with particular emphasis on the problem of fracture toughness. Trends in the selection of alloys for missile motor cases are pointed out. An appendix provides detailed information on materials and fabrication methods used for selected missiles.
