Project Title
Design Challenge
Luna 1 and 2 are 50lb hybrid rocket engines equipped with gas injected thrust control that run off a combination of Nitrous Oxide and HTPB. The Luna project serves as test and research bed for hybrid engine development. Over the course of the semester we have fabricated a second engine to enable two tests on the same day and have tested the system a total of 6 times. Throughout the year we have made improvements to the system and experimented with different fuel grain compositions, injector plate geometries, and thrust vector control injection pressures.
