  • Milestonesincryoliqproproceng_041508144818.pdf

    This paper reviews the milestones achieved with cryogenic liquid propellant rocket engines, discusses current technology improvement programs, and projects future engine designs. During the last two decades, these cryogenic rocket engines have played a major role in rocketry and achieved numerous important milestones. These engines power the Vanguard, Redstone, Thor, Atlas, and Titan I vehicles , the Saturn I and Uprated Saturn I vehicles, and will soon be employed in the Saturn V for the Apollo missions. The requirements dictated by these vehicles have necessitated growth from the 27,000-pound-thrust Vanguard engine to the 7,600,000-pound-thrust booster cluster for the Saturn V. Gains in specific impulse have also been significant. The successful application of liquid hydrogen in the Centaur and Saturn upper-stage rocket engines was a major achievement.

  • Revioftheresearch.pdf

    This report includes a discussion of 57 research and exploratory development events that have been identified as contributing significantly to LANCE. Forty-six of these are research events. Eight of the research events deal with LANCE aerodynamics, four with propulsion, 24 with solid-state components used in the guidance and control system,and 10 with the research origins of the materials and manufacturing processes used in LANCE. In addition, 11 exploratory development events are identified. The principal concern of this study has been the identification of further research origins of LANCE and the 46 documented events are its major product. A further concern and obligation of this study has been to provide HINDSIGHT with some additional data on the research phenomenon including some further observations on the nature and route of research utilization.; FOREWORD: The purpose of this report is to present a survey of fundamental research contributing to the successful development of the LANCE weapon system. Included in this report are discussions of research inputs to a number of LANCE systems and technology areas. The circumstances of these research contributions to LANCE are discussed.

  • SpacAgeManaMainTechCapaDurPeriRetr_062708142049.pdf

    On January 3Ist of this year the United States celebrated its tenth anniversary in Space. In just one decade we have seen our space program climb from an humble beginning (a 30.8-pound payload put into orbit with a jury-rigged rocket) to extra-vehicular-activity and the tremendous Saturn V vehicle capable, of putting 250,000 pounds into low earth orbit. We have seen it grow from a "quick and dirty" operation to a program which at its peak had approximately 380,000 industrial employees in excess of {dollar}5.O billion per year. The marshalling of this great management and technological team generated many "growing pains". A few years ago the hue and cry was, "Where are we going to get sufficient people with scientific knowledge and drive to implement the space program?" Industry, sometimes reluctantly, was pressed into tasks which required managerial and technical skills beyond those they then possessed.

  • spc_stnv_000058.pdf

    The introduction notes, "The Saturn V launch vehicle is being developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's George C. Marshall Space Flight Center for Project Apollo; Saturn I and Saturn IB vehicles are providing the early testing and support for Project Apollo. The nerve center of the Saturn is its guidance and control system. An airborne digital computer provides the link which closes both the guidance and control loops,making verification of the flight computer program of vital importance. During a powered flight this onboard digital computer program can be divided into four major parts:a) guidance, including navigation, b) control, c) vehicle sequencing, and d) computer telemetry."

  • EffHighpreSTEELS_042808114139.pdf

    Hydrogen embrittlement of steels is hardly a new subject, but the effects of high-pressure hydrogen have been treated in detail only more recently and to a much more limited extent. Thus, most investigations of hydrogen embrittlement have been concerned with hydrogen in metals, while for the high-pressure hydrogen problem, we are more concerned with metals in(in contact with) hydrogen. I believe there is a difference and, certainly,different mechanisms of embrittlement are at least possible.; Presented at the Central Florid Section, American Welding Society, Orlando, Florida, 14 November 1967 and North Alabama Chapter, American Society for Metals, Huntsville, Alabama, 16 November 1967.
