Abstract : The objective of this program is to study the influence of pertinent system design features and parameters on propellant storability and vehicle performance for a hypothetical LF2/LH2 maneuvering space propulsion system. The approach that will be taken is to: (1) perform theoretical studies on each basic subsystem and use the resulting data to optimize critical parameters for the overall system; (2) design and fabricate a test apparatus for evaluating, in a space simulation chamber, the analytical models; (3) evolve a test plan for this test apparatus; (4) reoptimize of the vehicle design parameters where necessary.
