Developing model to predict the characteristic of vented gas was vented through an orifice is presented. Simulations with models which were developed with assumptions considering heat transfer inside the vessel were conducted. Also, representative pressure and temperature were measured from experiments with the pressure vessel which is applicable to a propulsion system. Developed model were verified with comparison between calculations and experiments.

가압용 압력용기로부터 오리피스를 통해 기체가 배출되는 경우에 대하여 기체배출특성을 예측하기 위한 모델 개발에 대한 연구이다. 추진체계에 사용하기 적합한 압력용기에 대해 시험을 수행하여 대표적인 압력과 온도를 계측하였고, 압력용기 내부의 열전달에 대한 가정과 이에 대한 모델을 적용하여 시뮬레이션을 통해 압력과 온도를 예측하여 비교하였다. 그 결과 제안된 열전달 모델을 통해 계측된 압력과 온도와 유사한 예측 결과를 확인하였다.
