Hydrogen-fueled railroad motive power systems : a feasibiility study by R. W Foster( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under U.S. Energy Research and Development Administration sponsorship, and as part of its transportation energy conservation activity, a special assessment of prospects for railroad-system use of hydrogen fuel was conducted in the summer of 1976. Based on contacts with railroad organizations and individuals in government, industry, and research organizations, the feasibility and desirability of converting conventional diesel-electric locomotives to hydrogen operation were evaluated. Such a step is shown to be technically feasible and would provide another alternative--in addition to hydrocarbon synthetic fuels and railway electrification--for moving U.S. railroad systems away from today's near total dependency on petroleum. Environmental benefits would also accrue. The study report provides (1) the overall rationale for developing hydrogen railroad motive power systems, (2) an assessment of technical feasibility, and (3) a nominal development and demonstration program plan
A sequence diagram analysis of the Vanguard Satellite Launching Vehicle by William J. D Escher( Book )

4 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Vanguard Sequence Diagram method, introduced in AD-203 077, is applied to depict the operating sequence of the Vanguard Satellite Launching Vehicle. It relates vehicle systems oper-ATION DURING FINAL COUNTDOWN PREPARATIONS THROUGH LIFT-OFF, AND INCLUDES THE ENTIRE FLIGHT PROGRAM TO SATELLITE SEPARATION IN ORBIT. On the basis of information from the diagram, a brief system analysis of the vehicle is performed. The results are presented graphically and include: Vehicle state, state-transition breakdown; Vehicle component makeup; Launch program events; Flight profile of cumulative events and vehicle components remaining; Condensed sequence diagram; and Vehicle in-flight sequencing; flight-test results. A narrative description of the vehicle launch program is included by way of a verbal interpretation of the master sequence diagram. (Author)

Air augmented rocket propulsion concepts by R. W Foster( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report presents the results of a study of five combined cycle propulsion systems capable of accelerating a single stage vehicle with lifting surfaces from ground launch to Earth orbit. The engines studied were airbreathing, rocket based combined cycle (RBCC) engines. 'Combined Cycle' engines integrate airbreathing and rocket propulsion systems into a single engine system. These engines transition from initial air-augmented rocket mode takeoff and initial acceleration to ramjet to scramjet and finally to rocket propulsion to orbital insertion velocity. Engine systems, engine/vehicle integration, vehicle structure, propellant storage systems and thermal protection system (TPS) design, sizing and weight estimation, overall performance on various trajectories, and ground support systems were studied. A technology assessment, subscale engine test plan, development program plan and life cycle costs estimates are presented. Keywords: Air augmented rockets, Ramjets, Scramjets, Orbit on demand, Combined cycle engines, Space vehicles
