Abstract
A DEFINITION OF THE INFLUENCE OF HEATING RATE ON THE MECHANICAL AND THERMAL PROPERTIES OF PHENOLIC COMPOSITES USED IN ROCKET MOTOR COMPONENTS IS REQUIRED. IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH THIS GOAL, IT IS NECESSARY TO FIRST DEFINE THE INDEPTH TIME-TEMPERATURE RESPONSE OF THESE PHENOLIC COMPONENTS SUBJECTED TO THE MOTOR ENVIRONMENT. ONCE THIS HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED, THE VARIOUS TECHNIQUES WHICH HAVE BEEN USED CAN BE ASSESSED AND OPTIMUM APPROACHES FOR SIMULATION TO MOTOR TIMETEMPERATURE HISTORY CAN BE MADE. IT IS ALSO BELIEVED THAT A PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF THE HEATING RATE SENSITIVITY OF A REPRESENTATIVE PHENOLIC SHOULD AND CAN BE MADE IN THE PHASE I EFFORT.
