In an AP-HTPB propellant microstructure, the local strain rate depends on the AP crystal size and the material, while the local temperature rate depends on the impact velocity, AP crystal size, and the material. Larger AP crystals lead to higher local strain rates and higher local temperature rates, which means hot spots are more likely to occur in AP-HTPB propellants with more large AP crystals.
