Verneker, VRP and Kishore, K and Subhas, CBV (1983) Studies On Thermal-Decomposition Of Double-Base Propellants. In: Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets, 20 (2). pp. 141-143.Full text not available from this repository.
The scanning thermogram of a block sample of a double-base propellant shows a shoulder around 200°C which is not observed in a powder sample of the sample propellant. The heat of decomposition was also found to be different In the two cases. Product analysis and activation energy calculations show that nitroglycerine un dergoes decomposition in the block sample, whereas it vaporizes in the powder sample.
