Generazione E involves experimental research and industrial development activities.
Numerical Models were carried out to predict the performances of Space Thruster for VEGA-E launcher, in the operating conditions of flight. The accuracy of FE models was verified and improved by using experimental testing’s, considering both small and large scale fire tests.
It was concepted , developed, manufactured and installed, an acoustic noise reduction device generated by a supersonic jet coming from a liquid propellant engine. A set of integrated sensors have been inserted on the test apparatus, detecting the temperature and the internal deformations of the combustion chambers and nozzles.
