Abstract : This report details the technical effort put forth by CSD and its subcontractors during the first three phases of this program for propellant nonlinear constitutive theory extension. This includes the Phase I preliminary study in which the Quinlah theory was critiqued, alternate approaches were studied and detailed research planning accomplished. Also included are the detailed experimental evaluations of propellant during Phases II and III, the uniaxial/isothermal investigation and the two-dimensional variable temperature investigation. Detailed subcontractor theoretical development and predictions are presented.
