Abstract:

This report presents the results acquired during a solid propellant combustion project at the Astronautics Laboratory from 190-790. Four propellants were studied Ammonium nitrate primarily, double base, HMX1, and HMX2. The results are presented as temperature profiles of the various propellants. These were obtained through the use of embedded thermocouples in the propellants. In addition to temperature profiles, different thermocouple sizes and lead angles, different embedment processes, and observations of the burn characteristics are all included as data.
