The decision to use a single thrust chamber
(in lieu of several engines) was based on weight and efficiency and used redundant valving to ensure engine start and shutdown.
The remainder of the outside surface, with no major size or geometry restrictions, is further cut while a device, similar to the thrust chamber
and screwed up in the M56x1 thread, fastens the piece in the lathe.
Some RS-84 manifolds will also inject a small amount of kerosene directly into the thrust chamber
to create a thin film of fuel along the chamber wall, helping lower the temperature of the wall.
During a hot-fire test of the engine's thrust chamber
done in March, the engine showed a combustion efficiency of 98.5 percent.
Aerojet Rocketdyne recently achieved a significant milestone by successfully completing a series of hot-fire tests of an advanced, next-generation RL10 engine thrust chamber
design that was built almost entirely using additive manufacturing; commonly known as 3-D printing.
The positive ions in the plasma flow toward the extraction electrodes, where they are accelerated by the negative potential of grids at one end of the thrust chamber
. The grids create thousands of exhaust beamlets as the ions pass through the screens.
Last year, Aerojet Rocketdyne successfully hot-fire tested a full-scale, additively manufactured thrust chamber
assembly for the RL10 that was built from a copper alloy using a 3-D printing technique known as selective laser melting or SLM.
In our integrated modular platelet engine concept, we replace the 8 bell engines with 8 engine modules, each containing 10 small thrust chambers
. We divided the throat area of each thrust chamber
into two regions, comprising 30 and 70 percent," he said.
