Characterization of the new energetic hydrazone binder for solid rocket propellant
Kaori Fujimura


The new prepolymer for solid composite propellant was designed and synthesized. The results of the theoretical calculations and the burning rate measurements indicated that the prepolymer greatly improves the burning rate and the specific impulse of the composite propellant. Especially, in the AN-based propellant, the stable combustion was observed even at the pressure range which the HTPB propellant didn't. And it was also confirmed that no difference exists in impact and friction sensitivities between the propellants of both binders.
