Abstract
THE OBJECT OF THIS PHASE I STUDY IS TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF MODELING SOLID PROPELLANTS, CONSISTING OF ENERGETIC BINDERS CONTAININGVARIOUS FILLER MATERIALS, AS PARTICULATE COMPOSITES AND USING EXISTING METHODS FOR COMPOSITE PROPERTY ANALYSIS. INTERACTIONS OF CONSTITUENTS WILL BE STUDIED TO OBTAIN RELATIONS BETWEEN PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THE PROPELLANTS AND THE PROPERTIES AND GEOMETRY OF THE CONSTITUENTS. THERMO-MECHANICAL PROPERTIES TO BE CONSIDERED INCLUDE STIFFNESS, THEMAL EXPANSION, CREEP AND RELAXATION MODULI AND THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. APRROACHES TO THE STRENGTH PROBLEM WILL BE FORMULATED.
