Abstract : An interactive computer code for the preliminary design of solid propellant rocket motors ('SPRMD') was successfully developed and its use was demonstrated through a design example. 'SPRMD' was written in FORTRAN for use on an IBM PC/AT. It combined several existing codes ('MICROPEP', 'GRAINS', 'ROCKET', etc.) and used the performance loss estimation methods suggested by the AGARD Propulsion and Energetics Panel for aluminized propellants. Keywords: Solid propellant rocket motor, Design.
