Abstract:

An analysis has been made of the effects of kinetic heating during the boost phase on the main structure of Blue Streak. Three representative trajectories were investigated. The thermodynamic processes occurring within the propellent tanks were considered, both as a part of the general problem of structural heating and as specific problems in their own right. This last analysis produced information concerning pressurisation of the tanks and boil-off from the liquid oxygen surface.
