through; equation (38) governs the production of the gas after the web has burned through. With propellant grains in

which there is no perforation or only one perforation, equation (38) is not needed because a zero web fraction

corresponds to the complete consumption of the propellant. These equations are close approximations of the true

geometrical form functions, and the coefficients are defined in terms of propellant dimensions.
