Abstract:

Five lots of high-energy gun propellants were tested in uniaxial compression at temperatures of 21 deg, 63 deg, and - 32 deg C. The materials were taken to 60 strain using a deformation rate of 1.5 ms. The stress at failure, strain at failure, compressive modulus, failure modulus, incremental energy density, and the fracture assessment values were recorded for each test.
