NRX/EST Test Prediction Report (U)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objectives of this test are to demonstrate the ability of a NERVA-type engine system to bootstrap from a tank pressure of 45 PSIA to full power, to study the stability of the control systems, to obtain high power mapping data and to demonstrate the stability of the core at high power. System response measurements will be conducted at both low and high power points to study the control systems. The operation of the engine at 4000{sup o}R chamber temperature will be mapped from design pressure down to the pressure at which the tie rod temperature limit is reached.
