Abstract:

Presented are results of a program to modify an available Centaur tankage system for testing in the Air Force Rocket Propulsion Laboratory Space Environmental Simulation Chamber to determine its thermodynamic suitability for space storability. Results of a detailed thermal analysis predict equilibrium propellant tank net heat rates of 42.09 BTUhr for the LH2 tank and 14.56 BTUhr for the LN2 tank with corresponding respective boil-off rates of 0.218 lbhr and 0.169 lbhr.
