Abstract:

THIS PROJECT DEVELOPS AN ON-LINE RHEOMETER APPLYING THE PRINCIPLES OF THE HAGAN-POISEULLE EQUATION. THE RHEOMETER IS DESIGNED TO MEASURE ACCURATELY THE VISCOSITY OF MUNITION PROPELLANTS BEING EXTRUDED BY A TWIN-SCREW EXTRUDER. THE PROPELLANT EXTRUDATE IS A PSEUDOPLASTIC FLUID CONTAINING SUSPENDED SOLIDS. THE POISEULLE METER IS AN ACCURATE RHEOMETER FOR PSEUDOPLASTIC EXTRUDATES AND CAN BE IMPLEMENTED AS AN ON-LINE DEVICE. THIS PROPOSED RESEARCH PROGRAM ALSO DEVELOPS A PRELIMINARY CONTROL STRATEGY USING THE POISEULLE METER FOR FEED-BACK CONTROL AT THE EXTRUDER.
