  1. Knowledge-Based Multi-Diciplinary Optimization of Rocket Turbopump Design

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF04199

    The design of turbomachinery components is a complex process requiring many steps and hundreds of minute decisions in an iterative process. The design proceeds from engine cycle performance and meanline design through 3D viscous flow calculations (CFD) and finite element structural analysis (FEA). Design studies may traverse this process many times, with routine tasks performed by engineers in a ...

  5. High Suction Specific Speed Inducers for Cryogenic Upper Stage Engines

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    There is a significant opportunity to meet higher upper stage engine performance levels by combining a much higher chamber pressure expander cycle engine with advanced technology turbomachinery. The Phase II SBIR goal is to provide a solid foundation foran upper stage engine design focused on IHPRPT goals. Three main Phase II technical objectives must be met to achieve this goal: 1) finalize th ...

  6. Intelligent Virtual Rotor-Bearing System Design

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Lateral analysis of multi-level or multi-spool turbofan and turbojet engines has been regularly performed for more than 30 years by commercial engine manufacturers. Similarly, engine bearing designers also possess the ability to perform detailed analysisof bearing for the purpose of calculating operating characteristics (e.g., component operating temperatures) and determine statistical distribut ...

  7. Advanced Cooling Techniques for Hydrocarbon Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Developing new techniques for combustion chamber cooling are critical to increasing engine life to 60 missions or greater. Concepts NREC will explore several chamber cooling options that minimize or eliminate coking increasing engine chamber life withoutsacrificing performance or adding cost. The proposed Phase I study will investigate methane as the hydrocarbon propellant for cooling along with ...
