Abstract : A solid propellant rocket motor (First State Minuteman) was instrumented to record bond line stresses and inner bore strains. The motor was subjected to a variety of thermal and mechanical loads over a two-year period. Feasibility of instrumenting motors in the field was demonstrated and stress and strain data were reduced for the various loads. The reported results raise some questions regarding gage consistency but useful data were obtained. (Modified author abstract)
