In continuing the investigation of analysis procedures to be used in studying the structural integrity of solid propellant grains, we amplify the content of the first progress report without at this time opening up any new areas. However it is perhaps appropriate to enumerate some of the specific subjects to be presented later. Following the earlier pattern of (1) model representation and (2) tabulated elastic solutions, both of which are supplemented in this report, it is expected to include (3) heat transfer and temperature distributions, (4) engineering analysis, i.e. the practical combination of items (1), (2), and possibly (3) above, (5) failure criteria and strength analysis.
