Abstract : The project developed mathematical models of twin screw extrusion processing of solid rocket fuels, which were validated using well-instrumented and industrial- scale twin screw extruders and processing simulants. The project further identified various safety concerns, ways of detecting and eliminating them and developed the techniques necessary to characterize the rheological behavior of highly-filled energetic materials. The findings of this project provide the science and technology base of the continuous processing of solid rocket fuels using corotating twin screw extruders.
