Cryogenics as Applied to the Design and Fabrication of a Space Simulation Test Cell at the Arnold Engineering Development Center * 620321

The unusual features of the Ultrahigh Altitude Rocket Cell J-2A at Arnold Engineering Development Center are described with emphasis on the cryogenic systems for cooling the diffuser and chamber liner to liquid-nitrogen temperature and the helium-refrigerated cryopumping surfaces to 20 K. It is concluded that space simulation testing of large rocket engines under actual firing conditions is possible.
