Delft Aerospace Rocket Engineering have been investigating the safe storage of liquid oxygen that could feature in the next rocket project. The team has been looking into 3 different tank designs in order to achieve this, a welded aluminium design, aluminium with sealed bolt on bulkheads and a composite design with an inner liner.
The SDSU Rocket Project have been making steady progress on their new rocket, with 3D printing of the RCS nozzles and final work on the tanks before the domes get welded on.
The students of The SDSU Rocket Project have been busy, with work continuing on their new rocket with the fabrication of the aluminium tanks, shown below. As reported earlier these new tanks will enable a 40sec burn of the LR-101 rocket engine used by the team.
The team have also been working on a RCS (reaction control system) for the rocket and have started initial testing of this,
