In this comparative study, a solid composite, AN/HTPB-based propellant was prepared by conventional processing in a mechanical mixer and by applying an advanced processing technique relying on resonant acoustic mixing (RAM). After curing of the propellants, cross-sections were prepared and characterized by scanning electron microscopy. Also the...

There is limited knowledge on deriving the strength of an explosion based on the observed explosion effects. Existing methods are based primarily on the effects of blast overpressure on surrounding structures. Window breakage and structural damage are well studied and are widely used to derive most probable explosion strengths. Other explosive...

The burning rate characteristics of solid composite propellants can be modified via different methods. One of these is the application of different oxidizer particle sizes in the propellant. The effect of the use of fine and coarse particles of the oxidizer hydrazinium nitroformate (HNF) in hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB)-based...
