Abstract : The SRM propellant and polymer materials structural test program has potentially wide application to the testing and structural analysis of polymer materials and other materials generally characterized as being made of viscoelastic materials. The test program will provide a basis for characterization of the dynamic failure criteria for Solid Rocket Motor (SRM) propellant, insulation, inhibitor, and liners. This experimental investigation will also endeavor to obtain a consistent complete set of materials test data. This test data will be used to improve and revise the presently used theoretical math models for SRM propellant, insulation, inhibitor, liners, and seal O-rings.
