Multidisciplinary design of a rocket-based combined cycle SSTO launch vehicle using Taguchi methods. Combined Cycle SSTO Launch Vehicle. horizontal take-off. Introduction. A rocket-based combined-cycle (RBCC) engine exploits the synergistic interactions between a rocket and an air-breathing engine, effectively integrating a high thrust-to-weight ratio with a high specific impulse.It can function over an extensive Mach number range, and provide better performance than any single existing engine by: rocket-based combined cycle (RBCC} engine.

RBCC engines exhibit a high potential for lowering the operating cost of launching payloads into orbit. Tv,o sources of cost reductions can be identified. First, RBCC powered vehicles require only' 20% takeoff thrust compared to conventional rockets, thereby lowering the thrustFile Size: 3MB.

The space plane would use a combined cycle engine that would allow it to take off from an airport runway and fly into orbit. The rocket-based combined-cycle engine (RBCC). Launch vehicles.

A virtual encyclopedia of engineering, it is known for its completeness, easy-to-read style, and real-world approach to the process of design. The X is also fabricated from materials and construction techniques that are equivalent to the full scale operational vehicles so that operational data can be applied to a full scale Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) such a Venture by: 3.

vehicle can get to orbit. Also, larger vehicles can bear the weight of the NTR system much better than a smaller vehicle, but this results in a higher-powered nuclear reactor. ETO missions require a high T/W in rocket mode to reach orbit. This leads to the high reactor powers and high T/W e requirements for vehicles that can get any payloads.

Dual-mode scramjets combine subsonic combustion with supersonic combustion for operation at lower speeds, and rocket-based combined cycle (RBCC) engines supplement a traditional rocket's propulsion with a scramjet, allowing for additional oxidizer to 5/5(2).

The program's major investment is in hypersonic airbreathing propulsion since it offers the greatest potential for meeting the third generation launch vehicles. The program will mature the technologies in three key propulsion areas, scramjets, rocket-based combined cycle and turbine-based combination cycle.

Combined Cycle to Mach The lower map in the figure is for a combined cycle rocket ejector ram-scramjet engine powering a VTOHL SSTO (airbreather). Similar to the rocket, the available solution space lies in a narrower band between 0 tons payload at = and 10 tons payload at a range of = to Propulsion systems generally fall into two categories: Rocket-based and turbine-based.

Both approaches use dual-mode scramjets over much of the flight envelope, from Mach 3 or 4 to Mach 12 to Rocket based combined cycle (RBCC) systems use rockets in the scramjet duct for low speed acceleration and/or orbital insertion.

Looking to the future, an innovative air- breathing vehicle concept was designed by Astrox, ASC/XR, AFRL, and Boeing to be the reusable second stage of a two-stage-to- orbit launch system boosted by a reusable rocket first stage.

The second stage is pow- ered by rocket-based combined-cycle (RBCC) engines fueled by methane and LOX/hydro- gen. The International Space Station would have an orbital lifetime of only a few years without the periodic orbital boosts provided by the space shuttle or other rocket-powered space vehicles such as the Russian Progress.
