Abstract:

Presented is heat capacity data for the Titan II propellants, N2O4 as the oxidizer and a 5050 blend of UDMH and N2H4 as the fuel. The vapor pressure is affected slightly when measurements are made at different ullages. Tests were conducted to determine the effect these propellants have on metals and nonmetals and the effect of metals and contaminants on fuel blend decomposition. Various fuel blend mixing techniques were evaluated using laboratory quantities of UDMH and N2H4. Storability data is presented for the fuel blend at 60 deg. - 5 F and at 200 F. Various cleaning and flushing procedures were evaluated by flowing these propellants through thrust chamber bipropellant valves, flushing the valves, and storing them for 90 days. Author
