Conceptual Design of Coolant Channel for Sub-scale Combustion Chamber
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 6, issue 4, 2002, Pages 1~6
A numerical heat transfer analysis and the structural analysis were performed for the design of sub-scale combustion chamber's coolant passage. The heat flux through the combustion chamber wall was estimated by 2-D heat transfer analysis of compressible hot gas and the result was applied as a thermal boundary condition of 3-D analysis. The heat flux estimated by the present method agreed well with the experimental correlation and proved to be insensitive to cooling condition. So the same thermal boundary condition was applied for various operating conditions. The maximum temperature of combustion chamber wall was predicted by 3-D analysis for single coolant passage and the result will be used for the development of a regeneratively cooled combustion chamber. Also estimated were the stress distribution and structural safety of coolant passage through the static structural analysis.
Mathematical Modelling of Steady Cavitation Flow inside the Diffuser
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 6, issue 4, 2002, Pages 7~13
In this study, the mathematical model on the various complicated levels of the viscous liquid flows in the symmetric channel with the complicated shape was introduced and the assumptions applied to the simplified model was proposed. To analyse the steady cavitation flow, axis transform of physical region to non-dimensional region was performed, and multigrid were generated. Using this model, the steady cavitation flow was calculated, and good coincidence between experiment and calculation was achieved.
Flow Characteristics of Cryogenic Oxidizer in Liquid Propellant Rocket Engine
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 6, issue 4, 2002, Pages 15~23
In most cryogenic liquid rocket engines, liquid oxygen manifold and injector are not thermally insulated from room temperature environment fur reducing system complexity and the weight. This feature of cryogenic liquid rocket engine results in the situation that cryogenic liquid oxygen flow is easy to be vaporized especially in the vicinity of the manifold and the injector wall. The research in this paper is focused on two-phase flow phenomena of liquid oxygen in rocket engine. Vapor fraction was estimated by comparing the measured two-phase flow pressure drop in engine manifold and the injector with ideal single phase pressure drop. Heat flux into cryogenic flow is estimated by measuring the wall temperature on the engine manifold to examine boiling characteristics. Suitable correlations for cryogenic two-phase flow were also reviewed to see their applicability. In addition, the effect of vapor generation in liquid rocket engine manifold and injector on engine performance and stability was considered.
A Study on the LRE Thrust Chamber Regenerative Cooling Design
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 6, issue 4, 2002, Pages 25~35
A calculation procedure for designing LRE regenerative cooling system is introduced. In LRE thrust chamber, heat is transfered from the hot gas to the wall by convection and radiation, then conduction through the wall and finally convection to the liquid coolant. A cooling channel is designed on the basis of heat transfer rate calculated by using criterial method and integral method. The result is compared with existing Russian cooling channel design code. Also a design logic and quantitative effect of various parameters were introduced to help better understanding for those who is not familiar to LRE system.
Development of KSR-III Propulsion Feeding System
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 6, issue 4, 2002, Pages 37~45
The development process of KSR-III propulsion feeding system is subscripted. The purpose of propulsion feeding system is to feed a certain amount of propellant from propellant tank to engine by the end of combustion. Pressure-fed liquid rocket, KSR-III has the unique characteristics of both pressure regulator and cavitation venturi as a passive flow control device. Main parameters of feeding system are confirmed by both water test and CFD(전산유체) technique. Flow control effect with venturi is confirmed by water test. Initial stabilization characteristic of pressure regulator is confirmed by real propellant test. And, to avoid the effect of resonance between rocket and feeding system, this article deal with POGO(포고) analysis to the feeding system.
The Development of Pressure Regulator of Propellant Tank for KSR-III
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 6, issue 4, 2002, Pages 47~58
The pressure regulator has been developed as a pressure-control device of propellant tank in KSR-III. The pressurization system of KSR-III is a basic pressurization system composed of pressurant, He tank and propellant tank. The pressure-control regulator is the most important part of gas-pressurized feed system along with He tank, pyrovalve and He fill valve. The first model of the regulator is tested to satisfy in leakage, strength and basic performance. The second model is tested in the overall test of the KSR-III propulsion system using water. From the test result of the second model, we conclude that the capacity of valve(Cv) must be increased in real system. The third model is modified and tested in the overall test of KSR-III propulsion system using propellant. Finally, the pressure-control regulator is qualified from firing test.
