Abstract:

This report describes the results of an experimental study of the thermal decomposition characteristics of composite solid propellant fuel components. Variations in heating rate, pressure, environmental gas, and polymer type were studied. Supplementary propellant ignition tests utilizing an arc- imaging furnance and ionization gap techniques were conducted to obtain information relating time for onset of a gas-phase reaction to propellant ignition times via radiant heating.
