THERMAL PROTECTION FOR LIQUID-HYDROGEN FUEL TANKS IN HIGH-SPEED, LONG-RANGE AIRCRAFT,
RAND CORP SANTA MONICA CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
Part of a continuing study of cryogenic-fuel systems is presented. An analysis is presented of requirements for thermal protection systems and of fuel boil-off for liquid-hydrogen tanks aboard hypersonic, long-range aircraft. From this analysis it should be possible to obtain preliminary approximations of the weights of fuel boil-off and thermal protection systems over a wide spectrum of tank sizes and heat inputs. Author
