Abstract:

This testing was in support of the J-2 engine application to ths S-2 and S-4B stages of the Saturn 5 vehicle. The firings were accomplished at pressure altitudes between 78,000 and 110,000 ft at engine start. The primary objective of these firings was to evaluate engine start transients under various combinations of starting conditions with start tank energy being the major variable. The total accumulated firing duration for these four test periods was 223.2 sec.
