Title

"Rocket engine turbo pumps for space travel."

Description

Finding the turbopump arrangement which is best suited for a given rocket engine - space travel applications - constitutes an important task. The arrangement depends upon a large variety of different factors, such as, the engine cycle, weight, the liquids to be pumped, the cavitation performance, the bearings and their lubrication, the seals and the turbine. In this report these factors and their influence on the turbopump configuration are discussed. It is shown that three of them: weight, propellants to be pumped and obtainable suction performance have the largest influence on the selection of the turbopump. A systematic approach is outlines for the design process, which allows to arrive at a turbopump arrangement best suited for a given application.
