The design of liquid rocket engines requires careful considerations to ensure that mission requirements can be met safely. This 24-hour course will cover an introduction to the interdisciplinary design of turbomachinery components within their corresponding systems in the context of liquid rocket engines. The focus will be made on theory and will be illustrated with practical examples throughout the course, including through follow-along portions where attendees will be able to model cycles, perform turbine conceptual design, and more using the AxSTREAM® platform. Relevant topics include rocket cycles, turbine, pump, secondary flow, and rotor dynamics.
Dates: September 22 – October 29, 2021 (6 Weeks, 12 Lectures, 24 Hours)
- Every Wednesday and Friday at 1PM-3PM Eastern Time (all sessions will be recorded and available for replay; course notes will be available for download)
