Behavior of ergols

CARTELLIER A., McCLUSKEY F., THIBAULT J-P.

These studies are connected to the engineering of space launchers and concern:

  1. the behavior of ergols in tanks submitted to various sollicitations (sloshing, overturning,mixing)
  2. the thermo-hydraulic aspects of cavity filling in transitory behavior of rocket engines (explosive vaporization and filling)
  3. the thermodynamic control of ergol tanks by low pressure injection of liquid ergol.
