Rheology of HTPB Propellant: Effect of Mixing Speed and Mixing Time
Keywords: HTPB based propellant formulations, Pseudoplasticity
AbstractThe effect of mixer blade speed and mixing cycle time on the rheological behaviour of an optimized HTPB-based propellant formulations has been studied keeping the temperature constant. Variations in yield stress and viscosity at unit shear rate have been determined as a function of time for different mixing speeds. The effect of mixing on the extent of pseudoplasticity has been represented in the form of a bar chart. A correlation in terms of shear and yield stresses has been developed for viscosity index, i.e., the viscosity at unit shear rate as a function of mixer blade speed.
