Abstract : Burning rates were measured over the pressure range 10 to 280 MPa for an inert binder HMX-based nitramine propellant with and without added sodium borohydride (NaBH4). The addition of 6.4% NaBH4 resulted in more than a two-fold increase in burning rate over the pressure range 30-300 MPa.
