Abstract : Single crystal and pressed polycrystalline ammonium perchlorate (AP) wafers, pressed polycrystalline AP pellets, and ammonium perchlorate-binder (polybutadiene acrylic acid, hydroxyl terminated polybutadiene, polyurethane, and carboxyl terminated polybutadiene) sandwiches were burned in a schlieren equipped combustion bomb and in a centrifuge mounted combustion bomb. High-speed color schlieren and regular motion pictures were taken of the combustion process to determine the effects of pressure, binder type, binder thickness, and purity of ammonium perchlorate on the AP deflagration. AP pellet fabrication techniques and burning rate acceleration sensitivity were also investigated. (Author)
