Abstract

In a cryogenic rocket stage, the propellant temperature behavior is governed by the stratification phenomenon. Direct measurement of this behavior in full-size tanks is difficult and expensive. Therefore, one may prefer to use mathematical models, the accuracy of which must be checked on subscale experiments prior to being used for fullsize tanks. Another way would be to perform subscale experiments, to establish stratification phenomenon similitude laws in’ order to extrapolate these results to actual models. The research work described here has involved the theoretical determination of similitude laws and their experimental check.
