Abstract : An integrated three-component insulation wall assembly which can be used by itself as an insulation wall assembly, or which can be incorporated into a solid rocket motor case that is made of material fabricated using conventional layup construction methods, or which can provide the contour stability necessary to allow its functioning as a mandrel for filament-winding a solid rocket motor case, and which can be spliced and reinforced across the splice. The insulation wall assembly comprises, in an integrated condition, an inner wall component, (i.e., a flame side wall component) which is laminated from woven reinforcements in an ablative matrix, a middle wall component of non-metallic honeycomb core material, and an outer wall (i.e., pressure side wall component). The inner wall component provides a fire barrier; the middle wall component provides thermal insulation; and the outer wall component provides structural stability. (Author)
