Default Estes Standards and Testing motor PDFs

Where is a link on the NAR.org site to the other motor test PDFs like this one I found via a search:

https://www.nar.org/SandT/pdf/Estes/E16.pdf

I don't see any way to get to the data in that SandT/pdf subdirectory via links on their web site.

The easiest way I have found to locate these reports is through https://www.thrustcurve.org. Simply do a search of the motor and when the info page appears, about halfway down is a link for Data Sheet. That brings up the same report you have linked to.

Hope that helps

All the motor testing data is here.

Click on the blue link showing the motor designation and the data is displayed.

In the future, if you want to find that data simply do a search for "NAR approved motors." I always use the CAR/NAR/Tripoli link.

And if it's not obvious, the NAR only has the PDFs for the motors that were tested by NAR S&T. That list the Steve provided is a combined list from NAR, TRA and CAR.

No, I want the thrust curve PDFs like the one I linked to that I found only via a search engine search and not via links of the MAR site. I've got a whole subdirectory of earlier ones, but don't recall where I got them.

I'm only interested in NAR S&T motor testing PDFs that I somehow had apparently easy access to in the past, but can't find a link to now. I want to update my collection.

Here is the link I pointed you to:

https://www.nar.org/SandT/pdf/Estes/E16.pdf

That's exactly the same as the one you said you were looking for. Plus every other motorCAR/NAR/TRA currently certifies.

I guess I'm not understanding what you want that isn't on that list.

That is different. Double-check... this is just the E16 testing sheet.

Winston - The list of NAR-certified motors on the NAR website has hyperlinks to the NAR S&T files.

This URL is for the web-version of the NAR S&T list of certified motors.
https://www.nar.org/standards-and-t...ied-motor-list/
I hope this helps.

https://www.nar.org/SandT/pdf/Combi...rsByImpulse.pdf

This has all the links..

If you don't want to click the link from the PDF, you can go to the NAR website and from the Navigation Menu select Rocket Motor Information, and you will find this :
"The average thrust printed on the motor may differ greatly from the actual average thrust of the motor. You should check the engine data sheets at https://www.nar.org/standards-and-t...ied-motor-list/ for an accurate value. Just click on the motor designation for a particular motor to get a sheet with the actual as-tested numbers for every NAR certified motor."

Right-click on the motor name and select "Save link as" and it will put the PDF wherever you want to put it on your computer.

Thanks! I actually saw that page, but missed the PDF note somehow.
