Rheological Properties Such as Viscosity (η), Shear Stress (τ), and Torque (M) of the mixtures of (HTPB) with Octagon (HMX), Hexogen (RDX), and 2, 6 Diamino-4-Phenyl-1, 3, 5 Triazine (DAPTA) mixtures were measured. The experimental design was arranged for three factors at two levels (High and low levels). Temperature of the mixture (°C), Speed of the stirrer (rpm), Mixing Time (minutes) have been known to be effective in the quantity of Rheological properties. In this work, by using the appropriate equations the empirical model was presented for each property and mixture and the main effects on the responses were detected.
