  10. Advanced Cooling Techniques for Hydrocarbon Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: Software And Engineering Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD03009

    Liquid rocket engines may be run for repeatedly over extended periods of time, requiring active cooling. An efficient means of cooling LRE nozzles involves using the liquid fuel or oxidizer itself to provide the cooling, often referred to as regenerative cooling. SEA's liquid rocket combustion chamber and nozzle design code, TDK, can predict the heat transfer to the surface of the nozzle as a fu ...
