Abstract:

In a proposal entitled Introduction of Novel Rheological Evaluation Techniques and Processability Analyses to Continuous Propellant Manufacturing Operations, the following tasks were proposed to PBMA 1 Engineering analyses which encompassed the services related to the Implementation of Stevens rheometer designed and built at Stevens and currently on-loan to NSWCIndian Head and various aspects of processing at Thiokol for PBMA defined tasks. 2 Survey of devices and techniques to determine the particle size distribution of solid ingredients of propellants. 3 Development of maximum packing fraction as a tool of analysis and quality control. 4 Evaluation of the particle segregation problem for continuous feeding of the solid ingredients at Thiokol. 5 Application of various on-line monitoring techniques at Thiokol and evaluation of strategies for process control. jg p.3
