Abstract:

The purpose of this program was to design a hot gas motor that would subsequently be used as the prime mover in an advanced aircraft auxiliary power unit starter system. The report describes the APU starter system approach and the design details of the hot gas motor. The hot gas motor is a rotary vane device that would be powered with the decomposition products of a hydrazine-based fuel blend. Two computer models are presented for predicting the thermal-structural and thermal-performance characteristics of the hot gas motor over the required ambient temperature range of -65 to 130 F.
