Nice information, but anyone using it needs to look carefully at the spacing -- on initial display, it appeared that the first line read '01000-1.077"'; when reformatted to a different font, the space between the "01000-1" and the .077" became readily apparent.

In what motor do you join grains with tape? The HPR grains just drop inthe case together with NO joining required.
BTW, an E28 (the RMS equivalent of the E30) most certainly uses a different nozzle than the D15. So who knows what you got. It could have overpressurized the casing, especially with the 2 grains instead of 1.

I beg to differ. I saw some on the vendor table yesterday...
And the D15 is a fine motor. MUCH better than a D12 in the same model.

For that casing, NONE. The MR casings were not designed for the multi segment grains. THe only one that currently exists is for the 29/40-120 casing and it is just to get around the 62.5g limit by having 2 40g slugs.
Then there is the minor detail that this motor was not certified, thus not permitted at any NAR or TRA launch, nor in any state that follows NFPA 1122 (just about all of them).

Well, not quite twice, but 2 extra ends where the grains were "joined". As Gary calculated, he's lucky the case didn't blow.

Whoops, just went back to the start of the thread, and noticed the .au

If an E28 reload uses a longer -single- grain,it still would have a greater surface area to burn,just from the longer C-slot. The 24-40 case is designed for impulses up to 40ns.

The grains also burn on the ends; with two grains, you have four ends burning, not two. That's a significant different in burn surface area.

Significant? How much extra area do you think those two ends add,for such a small diameter fuel slug? (compared to the longer C-slot) It's not like it were a 98mm motor with giant fuel slugs.

Total impulse comes from the mass and -velocity- of ejected gases and particulates.Velocity is related to chamber pressure and throat diameter. Does the E28 load have the same nozzle throat diameter as as D load? If the propellant burns at the same rate,to get a higher impulse,the chamber pressure has to increase,as I understand it.

I would say that the addition of two ends is a greater difference on a smaller motor than on a larger one, plus you're not adding just the ends, but doubling the entire burn surface area.
Regardless, running a case beyond its design parameters is a recipe for disaster. Every time you do it, you put more stress on the hardware, which may ultimately result in it failing on a certified load.
