NPFC - MIL-STD-2100
PROPELLANT, SOLID, CHARACTERIZATION OF (EXCEPT GUN PROPELLANT)
|Publication Date:||30 March 1979|
The purpose of this standard is to provide a compendium of standardized methods to determine the intrinsic physical, chemical and interface properties of a solid propellant or propellants proposed for use in tactical rockets, missiles, aircrew escape systems, or auxiliary devices. These methods are listed in TABLE I.
This standard shall be applied to the extent necessary to establish the required data base for design selection and to determine any hazardous characteristics of the formulation and ingredients as required by FED-STD-513. It should be noted that all the tests in TABLE I may not be applicable to every propellant. This standard shall, therefore, be tailored by the procuring activity via the contract to require those tests and test conditions necessary to meet program objectives and to satisfy DoD directives (refer to MIL-HDBK-248 for additional tailoring guidance). Alternatively, additional tests or test conditions outside the environmental conditions foreseen may be necessary for any one specific program. Characterization shall not be considered a substitute for, or modification of, development, qualification, quality control, quality assurance, type life, or surveillance requirements.
This standard is intended for use in development programs for new propellants or in new applications research for which the existing data base is incomplete. The data generated shall be the basis... View More
This standard is intended for use in development programs for new propellants or in new applications research for which the existing data base is incomplete. The data generated shall be the basis for (a) design selection between several alternatives, and (b) generating specification requirements and quality assurance provisions for future procurement.View Less
