Higher Heat of Combustion and Exit Velocity using Butane and Liquid Oxygen in Space Shuttle
This article presents the increase in the values of the heat of combustion and the exit velocity through the nozzle
of a space shuttle using butane (fuel) and liquid oxygen (oxidiser). With the increase in the value of specific heat ratio, Me
and r (mixture ratio), we are able to achieve the same. All the calculations required have been discussed here.
Keywords - Combustion, exit velocity, fuel, butane and liquid oxygen.
