Abstract:

Half-scale models of protuberances unique to the MOL vehicle were constructed and tested. These models included the thrustor module assembly, VVSA fairing, and equipment fairing. In addition to these protuberances, a thin floor skin was also constructed. The model construction incorporated a precooling system wherein LN2 was circulated through the models prior to each run.
