Just over 1 day before we can say “dracarys” and ignite our Balerion engine! • To ensure Balerion hot-fires correctly, we’ll be running a cold-flow tomorrow to validate mass flow rates, temperatures, pressures, and more! For those of you who don’t know, a cold-flow is when we use inert propellants (LN2 and water) instead of live propellants (LOx and kerosene)! Check out our last Balerion cold-flow, above. • Stay up to date on details about our live stream and hot-fire by following us here on Instagram • #Balerion #TheBlackDread #Dracarys #GoT #rocketry #liquidpropellant #cryo #USC #lpl #liquidpropulsionlab #space #adastra #hotfire #1daytogo #rockets #omegaengineering #hydra #jessie #james #teamrocket #preparefortrouble

Feed System Design for Pressure Fed Rocket Engines

Continuing on with USC LPL rocket lectures, this second one focuses on the feed system design.
This side of rocket engines is sometimes not heavily covered in the literature out there so this is well worth a watch.

Liquid Rocket Engine Sizing

A great video lecture on Liquid Rocket Engine Sizing from USC LPL.

If you are struggling to get through the basics of Rocket Propulsion Elements, then this presentation is great to have on while flicking through the book!
