Abstract:

THIS STUDY WILL IDENTIFY ADDITIVES FOR AMMONIUM NITRATE TO SPECIFICALLY PHASE STABILIZE IT FOR USE IN SOLID ROCKET PROPELLANTS. THE ADDITIVES WILL BE BOTH ORGANIC AND INORGANIC MATERIALS. PRELIMINARY SCREENING TESTS WILL BE CONDUCTED USING A DIFFERENTIAL SCANNING CALORIMETER. THESE TESTS WILL BE FOLLOWED BY TEMPERATURE CYCLING OF CYLINDRICAL SPECIMENS. THOSE CANDIDATES PASSING THE PRELIMINARY SCREENING TESTS WILL BE USED IN PROPELLANTS WHICH WILL BE SUBJECTED TO STRAND BURNING RATE TESTS. AN OPTION HAS BEEN PRESENTED TO ALSO CONDUCT AGING AND MECHANICAL PROPERTY TESTS ON THE PSAN SAMPLES. BURNING RATE CATALYSTS WILL BE EXPLORED TO INCREASE THE BURNING RATES OF THE CANDIDATE PSANS.
