Abstract

Hybrid rocket engine with multi-section swirl injection method was designed and tested for the flight experiments of subscale space plane. Combustion experiments were carried out with high density polyethylene (HDPE) and paraffin fuel and gaseous oxygen with several combustion conditions. Fundamental data for flyable hybrid rocket including usefulness of high pressure CFRP oxygen tank have been revealed. Flight simulation using the measured thrust data clarified the reachable altitude and required thrust to future flight experiments.
