**Design for Inlet Pressure**

Make two initial guesses for inlet pressures (Pi1 and Pi2) and determine the corresponding exit pressures (Pe1 and Pe2 ) Evaluate a revised inlet pressure using the following equation: Then use the code to calculate the (exit pressure for ) Is very small? Stop, the results converged, is the inlet pressure. Yes No Calculate and If , then and remains unchanged

104
**Design for Aspect Ratio**

Breaks the cooling channel width interval into a number of increments (i.e. w1,w2 ,w3 ,…, wn, where w1 is the minimum width and wn is the maximum width). For each width value a procedure similar to that shown before will be used to determine the corresponding cooling channel height that yields the desired surface temperature at the throat. The resulting output will be n possible solutions,(w1,h1) , (w2,h2), … (wn,hn), from which the most feasible design from manufacturing point can be selected.

105
Dump Cooling Dump cooling is effective in hydrogen-fueled, low-pressure systems (Pc < 100 psi) or in nozzle extension of high-pressure hydrogen systems. A small amount of the total hydrogen flow is diverted from the main fuel-feed line, passed through cooling passage, and ejected. The heat transfer mechanism is similar to that of a co-current regenerative cooling. The coolant, in dump cooling, becomes superheated as it flows toward the nozzle exit, where it is expanded overboard at reasonably high temperatures and velocities, thus contributing some thrust.

106
**Dump Cooling Schematics**

107
Film Cooling Porous wall materials, or slots and holes provided in thrust-chamber walls, serve to introduce a coolant. The coolant is usually a fuel (LH2, RP1, etc.) Because of the interaction between coolant film and combustion gases, as a result of heat and mass transfer, the effective thickness of the coolant film decreases in the direction of flow. Additional coolant is injected at one or more downstream chamber stations. In most engine, film cooling can be achieved by injection of fuel toward the chamber wall through peripheral orifices in the injector.

108
**Film Cooling Heat transfer Twa Thrust chamber TCO Chamber wall**
