Abstract : The report presents a theoretical stress analysis of OOAMA/RPL Motor S/N 0012257. The analysis involved predicting stresses induced by temperature cycling, temperature shock, and pressurization. The results reported represent a major step in the use of instrumented motors to verify the accuracy of modulus dependent predictions of rocket motor grain structural behavior. (Author)
