Experiments on two-dimensional model propellants using cylindrical oxidizer (ammonium perchlorate) pellets in a fuel matrix (CTPB) are described. Measurements show that burning rate of AP in the fuel environment is lower than of pure AP. The oxidizer-to-fuel ratio seems to be fuel-rich when the oxidizer particles are imbedded in contact with the fuel and it becomes oxidizer-rich for a non-zero separation between oxidizer particle and the fuel.
