In the present investigation, an effort has been made to study pressure dependence, propellant composition, particle size and effect of catalyst on the burn rate of AP and AN based composite solid propellant. The variation of oxidizer has been made 70%, 75% and 80% based on earlier experience of the loading of PVC and HTPB on the physical and combustion characteristics of AP and AN based composite solid propellants. The particle size of the oxidizer in the present formulation is taken to be 44 μm and 149 μm respectively. The bimodal AP and AN are taken with mess size 150 and 300.The reason for taking this formulation is to compare the burning rate of the selected propellant and hence finding the best propellant.
