Abstract
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 a second option of cooling the chamber with liquid oxygen. The Phase I study will involve three engine classsizes: upper stage engines in the 15K to 35K thrust class,
