An Examination of Materials in Launch Vehicle Propulsion
Offline Availability: Go to Request Form
Abstract: The primary activities carried out for this effort used Mr. Glasgow's communication skills and materials expertise. He worked closely with both the Space Transportation Project Office and the Materials Division, preparing summaries of the weekly Space Transportation Project Office activities for use by the Materials and the Structures Divisions and for distribution to other portions of the GRC. Mr. Glasgow participated in systems analysis and planning sessions of the Program Office, serving as both a representative of the microtechnologists and as a reviewer of the macrotechnologies involved in proposed new launch vehicles. He helped define the technology readiness level of those new vehicle concepts and provided especially critical expertise to provide realistic technical assessments to various vehicle proponents. While a major portion of his work was performed at the GRC site, travel was required to Langley and to Nashville. In addition to the written contributions mentioned above, he presented summaries of Materials Division activities and interests in industry briefings. Mr. Glasgow continued his interest in the copper-chromium-niobium alloy system, a system originally identified by him as a potential rocket engine material and now chosen as baseline for two new rocket engine designs by the leading US builder of rocket engines.
