Unified Engineering Spring Term 2004 Problem P6. (Propulsion) (L.O. E) Evaluate the performance of a single stage sounding rocket to be used for atmospheric research. You are given the following design parameters: Combustion chamber temperature = 4000 K Combustion chamber pressure = 5 MPa Nozzle throat area = 0.0006 m2 Nozzle exit area = 0.01 m2 Propellant mass = 35 kg Total mass at takeoff = 50 kg Gas constant = 300 J/kg-K Ratio of specific heats = 1.35 a) What are the Isp and take-off thrust for this rocket? b) Assuming the rocket is launched vertically, and neglecting drag,

Unformatted text preview: how high will it go? [Note: To solve this problem you will have to use relationships from thermodynamics (steady flow energy equation) and fluid mechanics (compressible flow relations). These can all be found in the Unified Propulsion notes (Chapters V and VI). Most of the relations are written in terms of the exit Mach number, Me. To find this you will have to try several values of Me in the relationship for A*/Ae until the equation gives you the same ratio as given in the problem statement.]...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
