Abstract:

Orbital Technologies Corporation proposes to develop a model of both slow and fast cook-off events to help advance efforts to produce solid propellants that can meet insensitive munitions requirements. A standard test to predict the results of full scale SCO and FCO experiments will be developed. In Phase I, we will develop hypotheses to describe solid propellant response to slow and fast cook-off heating events for various propellant families. Experiments will be conducted and compared to the hypotheses for validation and refinement. A numerical simulation will be implemented, and plans developed for Phase II work.
