Abstract
Corvid Technologies is pleased to offer this proposal for the development of a first-principles numerical approach to modeling Solid Rocket Motor (SRMs) response to unplanned thermal stimuli. Corvid has a history of developing models for propellant violent reaction to projectile and fragment impact stimuli. We will adapt an existing heat transfer model to address SRM fast and slow cook-off due to events such as a fuel fire. If successful, this model development can be extended beyond its current capability by combining it with Lagrangian based numerical models to address IM enhancements as part of an SRM design and deployment program.
