The cohesive law of particle/binder interfaces in solid propellants

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned Report


Solid propellants are treated as composites with high volume fraction of
particles embedded in the polymeric binder. A micromechanics model
is developed to establish the link between the microscopic behavior of
particle/binder interfaces and the macroscopic constitutive information.
This model is then used to determine the tension/shearing coupled in-
terface cohesive law of a redesigned solid rocket motor propellant, based
on the experimental data of the stress-strain and dilatation-strain curves
for the material under slow rate uniaxial tension.
