Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 12)


Hydrogen is making its appearance on the horizon of supersonic and hypersonic aircraft fuels. The expanding regimes of speed, altitude, and range of aircraft of the 1970’s will grow out of advances in many different technologies. However, hydrogen fuel will be the common design denominator.
