Abstract
We propose a high-pressure, regeneratively-cooled combustion chamber that uses novel material selection for extreme reductions in mass. These materials are manufactured using proven processes, processes in which our two team members are expert. The combustion chamber liner will be made of a high-temperature-capable, low density material; the structural jacket will be made of a metal matrix composite material, with a tailored CTE close to that of the liner.
