Abstract : ITE PROPELLANTS, BINDERS, DEFLAGRATION, MATHEMATICAL MODELS, AMMONIUM PERCHLORATEPOLYBUTADIENEThe report summarizes studies of the combustion of ammonium perchlorate-polymeric binder-ammonium perchlorate sandwiches. The first section describes the combustion of sandwiches utilizing polyurethane, carboxyl-terminated polybutadiene, hyroxyl-terminated polybutadiene, or polybutadiene acrylic acid binders. The second section deals with the deflagration of sandwiches with Fe2O3 or Harshaw CuO2O2 catalysts incorporated in the ammonium perchlorate, the HTPB binder, or at the AP-HTPB interface. The third section is concerned with the combustion of sandwiches incorporating as-received or a special preoxidized aluminum within the HTPB binder. The final section is comprised of an analytical modeling of the sandwich combustion. (Author)
