Description

Solid Rocket Motors (SRM), a primary component to our defence and space programs, must preform reliably when used. SRM’s are typically cylindrical in shape consisting of: an outer shell (typically made of a rigid material such as steel or graphite composites) that bears the pressure of firing; an insulation barrier (similar to rubber) to protect the casing from the propellant burn; the inside of the motor is filled with solid propellant (fuel); and “adhesives” to bond layers together. The propellant consist of a polymeric binder highly filled with granular particles of aluminum (fuel) and oxidizer.
