Title

"Development of LOX/RP-1 Engines for Saturn/Apollo Launch Vehicles."

Alternative Title

AIAA Paper No. 68-569

Description

The development of liquid rocket engines follow similar patterns regardless of engine size. During the development of the H-1 and F-1 engines, many problems were encountered. Methods of solving the combustion instability problem are discussed. A description is given of the major components of each engine, outlining their unique features. The requirements for an insulation cocoon are discussed. Problems associated with materials substitution are provided; also highlighted is the fact that problems occur after engine deliveries and require continued development support. Safety features incorporated on the engines are mentioned. Solution to problems encountered in flight are discussed. Upratings of both engines systems are presented graphically.; On the NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS) unclassified. Can also be found on AIAA.
