Abstract:

The basic parameters influencing the design of liquid oxygen containers are considered and their design interrelation evaluated. Factors considered include materials, configuration, insulation, support members, instrumentation, valves, piping, weight, evaporation loss, and accessory items such as vacuum pumps and transfer hoses. Means for evaluating and optimizing the combination of the various factors are presented together with experimental work conducted in areas where information was lacking. Description of the design and construction of a liquid oxygen container together with the thermal test results on the container is included. Author
