© 2017 The Author(s) During the ram extrusion of gelled propellants, the possible flow instabilities can affect the extruded propellant quality. The numerical modelling helps to enhance the geometry of extrusion die, by minimizing the product distortion caused by material flow during this forming process. In the present work, a numerical model based on the finite difference method is proposed to analyze the flow simulation of double-base gelled propellant doughs through annular channels of extrusion dies. The proposed model implements the pseudo-plastic behavior described by these energetic materials. This model will be used to deduce the configuration of spider legs and annular channels that allow optimize the quality of extruded gelled propellant.
