The injection hole pattern on the face of the injector is closely related to theinternal manifolds or feed passages within the injector. Spacecrafft propulsionn is any metthod used too acceleratee spacecraft and artificcial satellites. Thehigher passage velocities cause a more uneven flow through different identical injectionholes and thus a poorer distribution and wider local gas composition variation. The flame front is not a simple plane surface across the combustion chamber There is turbulence in the gas flow in all parts of the combustion chamber. All the current Rockets run on Liquid-propellant rockets.
Use of this technology throughout it's journey without any deformation in Combustion chamber or Nozzle. When all these components work in their perfect algorithm ,only then we can achieve our goal a successful launch of a space vehicle for it's space mission. After the reaction in the thrust chamber, Tremendous amount of energy comes from the nozzle through the small opening in the form of plumes.
These plumes have a very high temperature during their emissions.
As the rocket heads from ground the shape of plumes also changes with respect to height achieved by the rocket. Therefore maximum efficiency is achieved i. Click To Add Comments.

Liquefied gases like liquid nitrogen andliquid oxygen are used in many cryogenic applications. Liquid nitrogen is the mostcommonly used element in cryogenics and is legally purchasable around the world. Liquid helium is also commonly used and allows for the lowest temperatures to bereached. These gases can be stored on large tanks called Dewar tanks, named afterJames Dewar, who first liquefied hydrogen, or in giant tanks used for commercialapplications.
The field of cryogenics advanced when during world war two, when metals werefrozen to low temperatures showed more wear resistance. In , a company wasformed, called Cyro-Tech, which experimented with the possibility of using cryogenictempering instead of Heat Treating, for increasing the life of metal tools. The theory wasbased on the existing theory of heat treating, which was lowering the temperatures toroom temperatures from high temperatures and supposing that further descent wouldallow more strength for further strength increase.
Unfortunately for the newly-bornindustry the results were unstable as the components sometimes experienced thermalshock when cooled too fast. Luckily with the use of applied research and the with thearrival of the modern computer this field has improved significantly, creating more stableresults.
Another use of cryogenics is cryogenic fuels. Cryogenic fuels, mainly oxygen andnitrogen have been used as rocket fuels. The Indian Space Research Organization ISRO is set to flight-test the indigenously developed cryogenic engine by early ,after the engine passed a second endurance test in It will form the finalstage of the GSLV for putting it into orbit 36, km from earth.
Cryogenic Engines are rocket motors designed for liquid fuels that have to beheld at very low "cryogenic" temperatures to be liquid - they would otherwise be gas atnormal temperatures. Cryogenic Rocket Engines The engine components are also cooled so the fuel doesnt boil to a gas in thelines that feed the engine.
The thrust comes from the rapid expansion from liquid to gaswith the gas emerging from the motor at very high speed. The energy needed to heatthe fuels comes from burning them, once they are gasses. Cryogenic engines are thehighest performing rocket motors. One disadvantage is that the fuel tanks tend to bebulky and require heavy insulation to store the propellant. Their high fuel efficiency,however, outweighs this disadvantage.
The Space Shuttles main engines used for liftoff are cryogenic engines. TheShuttles smaller thrusters for orbital maneuvering use non-cryogenic hypergolic fuels,which are compact and are stored at warm temperatures. All the current Rockets run on Liquid-propellant rockets. The major components of a cryogenic rocket engine are: However, hedid not immediately publish his work. In he wrote a letter to a newspaper in Lima,claiming he had experimented with a liquid rocket engine while he was a student inParis three decades earlier.
Historians of early rocketry experiments, among them Max Valier and Willy Ley,have given differing amounts of credence to Paulets report. Paulet described laboratorytests of liquid rocket engines, but did not claim to have flown a liquid rocket.
The first flight of a vehicle powered by a liquid-rocket took place on March 16, at Auburn, Massachusetts, when American professor Robert H.
Goddardlaunched a rocket which used liquid oxygen and gasoline as propellants. The rocket,which was dubbed "Nell", rose just 41 feet during a 2.
There are many different methods. Each method has drawbacks andadvantages, and spacecraft propulsion is an active area of research. This sort of engine is called a rocketengine. All current spacecraft use chemical rockets bipropellant or solid-fuel for launch,though some have used air-breathing engines on their first stage.
Most satellites havesimple reliable chemical thrusters. Soviet bloc satellites have used electric propulsionfor decades, and newer Western geo-orbiting spacecraft are starting to use them fornorth-south station keeping.
Interplanetary vehicles mostly use chemical rockets aswell, although a few have used ion thrusters to great success.
It consists of ahigh-pressure gas tank, a gas starting valve, a pressure regulator, propellant tanks,propellant valves, and feed lines. Additional components, such as filling and drainingprovisions, check valves, filters, flexible elastic bladders for separating the liquid fromthe pressurizing gas, and pressure sensors or gauges, are also often incorporated.
Afterall tanks are filled, the high-pressure gas valve is remotely actuated and admits gasthrough the pressure regulator at a constant pressure to the propellant tanks.
The checkvalves prevent mixing of the oxidizer with the fuel when the unit is not in an rightposition. The propellants are fed to the thrust chamber by opening valves. When thepropellants are completely consumed, the pressurizing gas can also scavenge andclean lines and valves of much of the liquid propellant residue. The variations in thissystem, such as the combination of several valves into one or the elimination andaddition of certain components, depend to a large extent on the application.
If a unit isto be used over and over, such as space-maneuver rocket, it will include severaladditional features such as, possibly, a thrust-regulating device and a tank level gauge. Cryogenic Rocket EnginesGas-Generator Cycle The gas-generator cycle taps off a small amount of fuel and oxidizer from themain flow to feed a burner called a gas generator. The hot gas from this generatorpasses through a turbine to generate power for the pumps that send propellants to thecombustion chamber.
The hot gas is then either dumped overboard or sent into themain nozzle downstream. Increasing the flow of propellants into the gas generatorincreases the speed of the turbine, which increases the flow of propellants into the maincombustion chamber and hence, the amount of thrust produced.
The gas generatormust burn propellants at a less-than-optimal mixture ratio to keep the temperature lowfor the turbine blades. Thus, the cycle is appropriate for moderate power requirementsbut not high-power systems, which would have to divert a large portion of the main flowto the less efficient gas-generator flow.
Like the gas-generator cycle, this cycle also has a burner, called a preburner, to generate gas for aturbine. The pre-burner taps off and burn a small amount of one propellant and a largeamount of the other, producing an oxidizer-rich or fuel-rich hot gas mixture that is mostlyunburned vaporized propellant. This hot gas is then passed through the turbine, injectedinto the main chamber, and burned again with the remaining propellants.
Theadvantage over the gas-generator cycle is that all of the propellants are burned at theoptimal mixture ratio in the main chamber and no flow is dumped overboard. The stagedcombustion cycle is often used for high-power applications. The higher the chamberpressure, the smaller and lighter the engine can be to produce the same thrust. Development cost for this cycle is higher because the high pressures complicate thedevelopment process. Here the liquidpropellants are metered, injected, atomized, vaporized, mixed, and burned to form hotreaction gas products, which in turn are accelerated and ejected at high velocity.
Arocket thrust chamber assembly has an injector, a combustion chamber, a supersonicnozzle, and mounting provisions. All have to withstand the extreme heat of combustionand the various forces, including the transmission of the thrust force to the vehicle.
There also is an ignition system if non-spontaneously ignitable propellants are used. The injector has to introduce and meter the flow of liquid propellantsto the combustion chamber, cause the liquids to be broken up into small droplets aprocess called atomization , and distribute and mix the propellants in such a mannerthat a correctly proportioned mixture of fuel and oxidizer will result, with uniformpropellant mass flow and composition over the chamber cross section.
This has beenaccomplished with different types of injector designs and elements. The injection hole pattern on the face of the injector is closely related to theinternal manifolds or feed passages within the injector. These provide for the distributionof the propellant from the injector inlet to all the injection holes.
A large complexmanifold volume allows low passage velocities and good distribution of flow over thecross section of the chamber. A small manifold volume allows for a lighter weightinjector and reduces the amount of "dribble" flow after the main valves are shut. Thehigher passage velocities cause a more uneven flow through different identical injectionholes and thus a poorer distribution and wider local gas composition variation.
Dribbling results in afterburning, which is an inefficient irregular combustion thatgives a little "cutoff" thrust after valve closing. For applications with very accurateterminal vehicle velocity requirements, the cutoff impulse has to be very small andreproducible and often valves are built into the injector to minimize passage volume. Impinging-stream-type, multiple-hole injectors are commonly used with oxygen-hydrocarbon and storable propellants.
For unlike doublet patterns the propellants areinjected through a number of separate small holes in such a manner that the fuel andoxidizer streams impinge upon each other.
Impingement forms thin liquid fans and aidsatomization of the liquids into droplets, also aiding distribution. The two liquid streamsthen form a fan which breaks up into droplets.
Cryogenic Rocket Engines Unlike doublets work best when the hole size more exactly, the volume flow ofthe fuel is about equal to that of the oxidizer and the ignition delay is long enough toallow the formation of fans. For uneven volume flow the triplet pattern seems to be moreeffective. The non-impinging or shower head injector employs non-impinging streams ofpropellant usually emerging normal to the face of the injector.
It relies on turbulence anddiffusion to achieve mixing. This type is now not used, because it requires a large chamber volume forgood combustion.
Sheet or spray-type injectors give cylindrical, conical, or other types of spraysheets; these sprays generally intersect and thereby promote mixing and atomization.
By varying the width of the sheet through an axially moveable sleeve it is possible tothrottle the propellant flow over a wide range without excessive reduction in injector 10 Toc H Institute Of Science And Technology, Arakkunnam, Ernakulam Cryogenic Rocket Enginespressure drop.
This type of variable area concentric tube injector was used on thedescent engine of the Lunar Excursion Module and throttled over a The coaxial hollow post injector has been used for liquid oxygen and gaseoushydrogen injectors by most domestic and foreign rocket designers. It works well whenthe liquid hydrogen has absorbed heat from cooling jackets and has been gasified.
The injector has a multiplicity of these coaxial posts on its face. The mixing is aided by localturbulence and diffusion of the gas species.
The further breakdown of the propellantchemicals into intermediate fractions and smaller, simpler chemicals and the oxidationof fuel fractions occur rapidly in this zone.
