A preliminary design of an advanced LOX LH2 expander cycle rocket engine producing 7,500 lbf thrust for Orbital Transfer vehicle missions was completed. Engine system, component and turbomachinery analysis at both on design and off design conditions were completed. The preliminary design analysis results showed engine requirements and performance goals were met. Computer models are described and model outputs are presented. Engine system assembly layouts, component layouts and valve and control system analysis are presented. Major design technologies were identified and remaining issues and concerns were listed. Orbit Transfer VehicleOTV. Expander cycle, Hydrogenoxygen rocket engine, Space based engine. High pressure fuel turbopump.
