Abstract:

The report presents discussions and data derived from a program that investigated the feasibility of applying high-strength materials and advanced fabrication techniques to high-pressure, storable, liquid-rocket propellant tankage. The major design goal was to attain minimum weight tankage commensurate with performance requirements. Three 70-inch-diameter 210-inch-long tanks were filament wound with fiberglass yarn and epoxy resin. Author
