The structure examined herein aims to keep fuel from entering the space behind the cuff, evacuate the space behind the cuff, reliably fasten the cuff to the thermal protective coating of the bottom in the process of charge forming, easily release the cuff after charge forming, and remove the support structure elements from the casing after charge polymerization when equipping. The structure was tested in the process of fueling the solid rocket motor casing and during charge polymerization. In order to comply with the specified requirements the cuff functions were identified, the structures previously developed were analyzed, and a new structure was designed and improved after testing. The improved structure ensured that fuel did not enter the space behind the cuff; it was removed easily after charge forming. Conclusions proved the suitability of this stricture.
Key words: insert, charge, ring, cuff.
