Abstract
We propose to develop marketable codes which will: model the morphology of heterogeneous propellants (a packing code); calculate the thermal and mechanical properties of such a morphology or pack; simulate the combustion of the pack; predict the statistics of aluminum agglomeration on the burning pack surface; simulate the flight of these agglomerates through the chamber, after surface detachment, and calculate the performance impact of this flight.
