Abstract : In this Phase II Small Business Initiated Research (SBIR) program, the various combustion mechanisms of very high burn rate (VHBR) propellant formulations were studied. Toward this end, various diagnostic and specialized instrumentation techniques were developed and evaluated. These techniques included miniature strain gage instrumentation and cine x-ray experimentation. The program resulted in hypotheses regarding combustion mechanisms at work in VHBR propellant formulations.
