Abstract:

The results of preliminary modeling of a solid propellant flow as would occur during propellant casting is presented. Both single and multiple velocity field models were investigated. Results with the single velocity field model produced solid particle segregation that was in qualitative agreement with experience. It is the objective of this work to understand and ultimately predict the composition gradients that result during solid propellant processing. Author JD
