Title: Thermal growth and mechanical properties of RX-03-BB. Period covered: January--March 1976. Normal process development endeavor No. 106

Abstract

Heat treatment at 124/sup 0/C for 8 days of TATB powder or RX-03-BB granules was found to give no improvement in the mechanical properties or thermal growth of the subsequently pressed RX-03-BB. The results indicate that prior heat treatment may cause an increase in thermal growth. Strain rate control compression tests for LLL Blend 9 were completed. No significant difference was observed in rupture strain measured with strain rate control (6.7 percent) and the constant crosshead test (6.8 percent).
