Cavitation Characteristics of Tank-Mounted Cryogenic Pumps and Their Predicted Performance under Reduced Gravity
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 7)
Today’s high-performance missiles and aircraft require propellant supply systems which carefully balance the following:
High speed and light weight of the pumps
Low tank pressurization for low tank weight
Steady and reliable propellant feed, free from cavitation surging
KeywordsCentrifugal Pump Velocity Head Liquid Hydrogen Tank Bottom Pump Suction
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
