    Micro-structural Effect on Hydroxy Terminated Poly Butadiene (HTPB) Prepolymer and HTPB Based Composite Propellant

    Composite propellant mainly contains hydroxyl-terminated poly (butadiene) (HTPB) based binder and oxidizer like ammonium perchlorate (AP). The mechanical properties requirement of composite propellant is very stringent. The mechanical properties of the final product is mainly depends on the microstructure of HTPB prepolymer binder. In HTPB, three different types of microstructures…
