Abstract: The low temperature behavior of several samples of N-5 rocket propellant was studied using DTA. The only significant occurrence during cooling to -100°C was the glass transition. The temperature of this transformation was found to be -58°F ±3°F by dilatometry. In addition, the variability of tensile strength, elongation, and strength modulus among three producers was examined. Significant variations were found among lots from any one plant; but variations in the average values for each plant were not significant.
