Abstract:

A study of advanced fuel systems for ramjet-powered vehicles is presented. The fuel considered in this study was the dense hydrocarbon RJ-5. Components of the fuel system studied included the fuel tank, tank pressurization subsystem, expulsion bladder, booster pump, transfer lines, valves, seals and insulation. Thermal conditioning is also evaluated. The fuel itself, RJ-5, was studied for design purposes, to evaluate storability, and to determine compatibility of the fuel with materials with which it might come into contact. A full-scale fuel system simulator is described to evaluate fuel system properties over a wide range of operating and test results are presented.
