Abstract:

Preliminary design concepts have been used to establish reference designs to cover a large range of vehicle sizes. The reference designs are to be utilized to study the hardware design problems. Three reference designs are established. Each design was chosen to fall within certain classifications of size 20orD sub o or50, 50orD sub o or200, and 200orD sub o or 1000. It must be stressed that the reference designs do not necessarily represent the optimum design in each range. Three purposes are accomplished through use of reference designs A propulsion system design method is established. The use of the design techniques are illustrated. Comparisons can be made between various propulsion system compounds.
