Propellant Tank Pressurization-System Analysis
A computer program has been formulated as a tool for conducting design analyses of missile propellant-tank pressurization systems. In contrast to analysis methods developed for a specific system model [1–8], this program was developed to handle the general case. To meet this objective, some theoretical rigor was sacrificed for application flexibility. In order to indicate the effects of this method, computer analysis predictions are compared with data obtained from a liquid-hydrogen pressurlzation-system test program.
