An Experimental and Analytical Evaluation of the Thermal Behavior of Liquid Hydrogen in a Tank Designed and Insulated for Use in a Hypersonic Vehicle
Attention has been focused in recent years on hypersonic flight. Numerous synthesis and systems studies have been conducted to define and optimize various airframe and propulsion concepts. Liquid hydrogen almost always evolves as the most desirable fuel because of its two inherent advantages, i.e., high heat capacity which provides needed coolant and high energy content per unit mass.
