Case bonded with silicone, lower Young’s Modulus

Another run of the star core KNSB grain bonded into an aluminum casing, but this time with a theoretical KNSB formulation that has a Young’s Modulus of 70ksi, rather than the prior example with unadulterated KNSB of 850ksi Young’s Modulus. The stresses are much less, and thus the factor of safety higher, because the grain can flex more with the casing.
