Pagination or Media Count:
This report discusses four experimental investigations 1 The effect of propellant strand size on the experimentally measured burning rate at various acceleration levels 2 an investigation of the effect of initial propellant temperature on acceleration induced burning rate augmentation 3 an investigation of the effect of nominal burning rate on acceleration induced burning rate augmentation and 4 a photographic investigation of augmented burning rate. Significance of the investigation and a brief review of the literature are presented.
