Review of POGO and PSD
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 4, 2003, Pages 1~9
To reduce the possibility of longitudinal dynamic instability, called "POGO", in the liquid rocket system due to the feedback effect of a main structure and a fuel-feeding system, several different types of PSD(POGO Suppression Device) systems have been studied. In the present study, several different types of PSD were reviewed. Basically, all PSD systems can be categorized into two groups; a passive PSD or an active PSD. We can classify the passive PSD's into more detailed groups according to their compliance methods; localized compliance methods or distributed compliance methods. As a result of our intensive review on various PSD's, the gas-filled accumulator with a level control system is considered to be the most suitable one to suppress the POGO instability without mal-effects to the performance of a fuel-feeding system.ng system.
Design of PSD Performance Test System
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 4, 2003, Pages 10~18
In the present study, several different types of PSD performance test systems were reviewed. Basically there are two methods to pulsate the system; whole-feeding-system pulsation and working-fluid pulsation. The latter method adopts either a piston-type pulsator or a restrict-type pulsator The working-fluid pulsation using a restrict-type pulsator was considered to be the most appropriate experimental system to study the effects of the primary parameters, and a practical design of the system was proposed.
Conceptual Study and Design Ideas for SUAV Propulsion System
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 4, 2003, Pages 19~26
In this paper, the result of the conceptual study of a tipjet driven propulsion system is presented. The concept of a tipjet driven propulsion system is to employ tipjet as power source to drive a rotor Because the vehicle is supposed to takeoff and land vertically, a rotor system, which has tipjet nozzles, is adopted to fly like a helicopter. Exhaust gas, which is generated by an engine, Passes through an internal duct system and divided into four blade ducts. The design code is consists of two parts, engine model and internal duct model. Inside a rotating duct, compressible flow is affected by two additional force terms, centrifugal force and coriolis force and they govern the performance in rotary mode, The intention of this paper is to address the issues associated with sizing and optimizing configurations of a tipjet driven propulsion system especially in rotary wing mode.
Experiment on the Limit Scale of Combustion in Constant Volume Micro Combustor
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 4, 2003, Pages 27~32
The Performance of micro combustor in various condition was exploited experimentally. Various geometric conditions of combustor were considered to figure out the performance of micro combustor. The micro combustor studied in this study was constant volume with cylindrical shape. Geometric parameters of combustor were defined to be combustor height and diameter. The effect of height was exploited parametrically with the size of 1mm, 2mm and 3mm. The effect of diameter was observed parameterized with 7.5mm and 15mm. Three different combustibles or Stoichiometric mixture of methane/air, hydrogen/air were used. Pressure transition during combustion process was recorded. The maximum pressure by combustion responded favorably with the change of height of combustor and the initial pressure. The flame propagation was visulized using Schlieren method. The flame propagation within combustor was observed when specific conditions such as combustor height and initial pressure over critical value was satisfied.

Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 4, 2003, Pages 33~38
The Physics of the Plume-induced shock and separation Particularly at a high Plume to exit pressure ratio and supersonic speeds up to Mach 3.0 with and without a passive control method, porous extension, were studied using computational techniques. Mass-averaged Navier-Stokes equations with the RNG
turbulence model were solved using a fully implicit finite volume scheme and a 4-stage Runge-Kutta method. The control methodology for plume-afterbody interactions is to use a perforated wall attached at either the nozzle exit or the edge of the missile base. The Effect of porous wall length on plume interference is also investigated The computational results show the main effect of the porous extension on plume-afterbody interactions is to restrain the plume from strongly underexpanding during a change in flight conditions. With control, a change in porous extension length has no significant effect rut plume interference.
The Study on Aerodynamic Characteristics for the Design of High Efficiency Jet Vane
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 4, 2003, Pages 39~45
Of the various means for active trajectory correction, a thrust vector control system represents the only principle independent of missile external forces so that this method is operative. The purpose of this study is to analyze the characteristic of jet vane TVC(Thrust vector control) system among mechanical jet deflection. To ensure high performance leading edge shape, aspect ratio and ablated condition is optimized. Supersonic flow system, jet vanes and nozzle with Mach number 2.88 and under expansion ratio 2 were designed to study aerodynamic characteristics of leading edge shape, aspect ratio and ablated conditions.
A Numerical Simulation of Regenerative Cooling Heat Transfer for the Rocket Engine
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 4, 2003, Pages 46~52
This paper presents the numerical thermal analysis for regeneratively cooled rocket thrust chambers. An integrated numerical model incorporates computational fluid dynamics for the hot-gas thermal environment, and thermal analysis for the liner and coolant channels. The flow and temperature fields in rocket thrust chambers is assumed to be axisymmetric steady state which is presumed to the combustion liner. The heat flux computed from nozzle flow is used to predict the temperature distribution of the combustion liner As a result, we present the wall temperature of combustion liner and the temperature change of coolant.
Preliminary Design of Supersonic Ground Test Facility
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 4, 2003, Pages 53~62
A supersonic ground test facility to develop Ramjet and SCRamjet(Supersonic Combustion Ramjet) engine should be able to simulate high altitude and high Mach number conditions including air total pressure, oxygen level and specific heat ratio at the combustion chamber entrance. The test facility also should simulate the effect of oblique shock wave caused by the flight vehicle. The test facility developed in this study is supersonic free-jet blow down type, which consists of high pressure air supply source(maximum pressure=32MPa), air heater(vitiation type), supersonic diffuser, ejector, and test chamber(nozzle exit dimension=200mm
Analysis of Performance and Combustion Characteristics in KSR-III Liquid Rocket Engine with Combustion Instability Passive Control Device(Baffle)
Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 4, 2003, Pages 63~72
The combustion characteristics of the KSR-III engine were investigated numerically from the viewpoint of performance and combustion field. For numerical analysis of KSR-III engine with hub-and-spoke baffle, 3-D calculation was performed about
section and the prediction of performance was in a good agreement with hot-firing test result. As a result of baffle installed, the performance of KSR-III engine was reduced in comparison with no baffle case and local high temperature region appeared on injector plate, combustion wall and baffle wall, This calculation was used practically as basic data for designing injector plate with film cooling holes and predicting the performance of KSR-III final flight test.

Journal of the Korean Society of Propulsion Engineers, volume 7, issue 4, 2003, Pages 73~79
The tensile strength test and the analysis for the section of brazing were performed in the cases of materials used for combustion chamber of regeneratively cooled liquid rocket engine. BNi-2 and BNi-7 based on nickel were used for brazing as filler metal. The properties of material and filler metal were analyzed by tensile strength test and metal microscope for 12 specimens. The tensile-strength of brazing for chrome-copper alloy and other kinds of alloy was higher than that of chrome-zirconium-copper alloy and other kinds of alloy The tensile strength in the case of BNi-2 as filler metal was higher than that of BNi-7 because the wetting property of BNi-2 was better than that of BNi-7.
