Presented are the results of studies and earth gravity workability tests for propellant systems of liquid rocket engines using surface force and dielectrophoretic means for fluid containment and localization. The purpose of the work is to employ techniques that will ensure positive ex pulsion of liquid propellants under adverse space-oriented conditions that include reduced and zero gravity. Prototype propellant contain ers are proposed that utilize these two methods surface force and dielectrophoretic to con tain and localize propellant types specified by the USAF. Pertinent data and general design in formation are included to assist designers in evolving other systems employing these same techniques. Author
