Abstract:

A two phase program was conducted to define requirements and to prepare a preliminary design of a test motor system that will accurately and economically simulate the chamber environments of present and future large solid propellant rocket motors. A segmented motor configuration with 28-in. outside diameter case bonded propellant grains was selected. The nominal grain configuration is an internal burning cylinder with both ends burning.
