HAL5 monthly program on "Coaxial Combusting Vortex Rocket Motor" with
William (Bill) H. Knuth: Founder/President, KEI Consulting Services.
Coaxial combusting vortex flow fields can be designed to produce
discrete zones in combustion chambers. These zones can be designed to
separate the steps in confined combustion processes into liquid phase,
vapor phase, ignition phase, combustion, and exit phase zones. The
benefits of such design capability include combustion chamber operation
with cool chamber walls, localized cooling demands, focused and
intensified combustion regions for high C* efficiency and resistance to
combustion instability. The resulting rocket combustion chambers are
inexpensive to manufacture, exhibit extended service life and are light
weight. The key design features of such chambers are presented, and
typical applications are described, together with a discussion of the
combusting vortex flow field itself.
For a fourth year in a row, HAL5 was awarded the NSS Chapter Excellence Award for Education Outreach. Special thanks to our members, supporters and attendees of our monthly programs to HAL5 one of the most active chapter in NSS! Thank you!
Would you like to give a talk to HAL5 on subjects related to space,
space exploration, space science, space tourism,
technology, aerospace technologies, planetary defense,
and STEM? If you do, please
Members and general public are welcome to attend the HAL5 Executive Officers' meetings. The Tuesday after our Monthly program, except for holidays, at 6 pm at Newk's on University Drive.
Open to all current HAL5 members. We meet on Tuesday from 7 PM to 9:30 PM at Steve's except for holidays and other conflicts. If you are interested, please .
