Abstract

The propellant KM10, a single propellant manufactured nitrocellulose, is known to cause natural degradation phenomena at long term storage. The self-life was estimated using generally used high temperature acceleration aging tests to analyze the content of stabilizer and using the Arrhenius equation & Berthelot equation to calculate reaction rate constants. According to the result of this study, self-life of propellant KM10 using the Arrhenius equation & Berthelot equation appear significantly different as 43.73, 16.53years and when compared with the paper of E. R. Bixon, self-life of propellant KM10 predicted using the Arrhenius equation was reasonably determined.
