The Air Force Research Laboratory’s Prop ulsion Directorate is developing higher energy density hydrocarbon fuels for application in reusable liquid rocket engines . For increased performance and operability, next generation engines will require better thermal stability understand ing of hydrocarbo n fuels under high heat fluxes . Of the existing thermal stability test rig s, none ha ve the ability to accurately simulate the high heat flux conditions that will exist in the cooling channels of… CONTINUE READING
