What is the Thrust Chamber Sub-Team?
The Thrust Chamber sub-team is responsible for designing, analyzing, and fabricating an Ignitor, Combustion Chamber, Injection Plate, and Nozzle. The sub-team’s goal is to produce a target thrust of 700 pounds. The Thrust Chamber system needs to produce efficient combustion and withstand the high temperature and high pressure from the combustion. Furthermore, the sub–team will design, build, and test a functioning liquid rocket engine.
Joining the Thrust Chamber Sub-Team
The design of the Thrust Chamber Assembly requires a level of understanding that can only be reached through continuous research. We are looking for highly motivated and passionate engineering students that have experience in solidworks, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, and manufacturing.
