Dynamic behavior of the burning surface of propellants has been captured as a function of pressure via movies taken with a 30-frames s vi deo camera. These movies can be played with the CD version of this manuscript. A windowed vessel capable of pressurization was used to burn the propellants XM39, M43, HMX2, MlO, M30, JA2, and RDX over a pressure range from 0.1 to 3 MPa. The SVHS video camera was angled down to capture the dynamic surface behavior and provide some basis for assessing the validity of a one-dimensional approximation of the surface. Along with these propellant movies, plots of linear burning rate vs. pressure h ave been included.
