Abstract:

An experimental investigation was conducted to determine the feasibility and practicality of the dual chamber rocket concept. Cold flow studies were performed which utilized a telescoping booster cavity. The effects of booster cavity length, booster cavity shockdown pressure, boostersustainer nozzle area ratio, and aft nozzle removal on thrust and the booster cavity pressure distribution were explored.
