2/14 Overview The Air Force ISP code is a DOS-based thermochemistry code designed for rocket combustion/performance evaluation Performs similar functions as ‘Rocket’ mode of CEA Why use this code over CEA? Has optimization feature which allows code to be run over a large range of O/F’s, P c ’s, A e /A t ’s, etc. with minimal input effort by user Produces tabular summary of data which can easily copied into Excel, Matlab, etc. Drawbacks to ISP Code? Does not calculate thermal transport properties Does not have additional functional capabilities that CEA has such as shocks, detonations, etc. Software is available for download on AAE 539 course website
