Study of the Thermal Behavior of Solid Propellants by Differential Scanning Calorimetry
The complex combustion of composite (heterogeneous) solid propellants has not as yet been described in a practical combustion model. The main interest in establishing such a model is the need for a priori knowledge of the effect of changes in physical properties and chemical composition of solid propellants on the ballistic parameters of a rocket motor. If one contends that solid phase reactions are important and possibly even controlling in this complex combustion process, a study of the thermal behavior of solid propellants and their individual ingredients is essential to understanding their combustion process.
