Application of Viscous and Inviscid Computation Methods for Rocket Turbopump Systems 841522

This paper examines current research efforts underway at Lewis Research Center which have focused on improving the structural durability of the SSME turbodrive system through more fully examining the aerothermodynamics of the flow system. This objective was achieved by developing three-dimensional viscous and inviscid computer codes to predict the pressure and temperature distributions in the engine flow passages, particularly within the SSME turbines and turnaround ducts.
