Thermal stability of a han-based liquid gun propellant
Date of Original Version
Experiments to determine the effect of surface area, head space, and containment on liquid gun propellant degradation at temperatures of 100 and 148°C were conducted. The conclusions from these tests are that an increased surface area in LP containment can significantly increase the rate of LP decomposition. The head space is not a significant factor in altering the rate of degradation, but if the gaseous products are allowed to escape, the degradation rate is significantly lowered. © 1997 Akadémiai Kiadó,.
