Abstract:

A flexible, modular, fully automated, solid rocket motor performance prediction program has been developed. The program, which has been given the acronym SPP is based on six pre-existing computer codes. These codes have been integrated and modified, as required. To supplement the theory, where necessary, and to increase the flexibility of the program, a number of existing and newly developed semi-empirical correlations were incorporated into the program. The program has a general three-dimensional grain design capability, coupled to a one-dimensional ballistics analysis. The deviations from ideal performance are computed as a series of independent efficiencies.
