Thank you to everyone who has supported our campaign so far. We have 2 days left to reach our goal of $6,500 so if you haven't already, please make your gift today.
We have received a rough quote from UCSD to use their test stand and plan to use it this summer! We will be performing a static fire test of our current rocket engine design to evaluate its performance. A lot of effort has gone into the design of this engine. Tools such as rocket propulsion analysis, STAR-CCM+, and Ansys Fluent (fluid simulation software), and MATLAB have been used to develop a practical design. We are also looking into sourcing a vendor to manufacture our cavitating venturi design as well. Cavitating venturis will be used to regulate the fluid flow of our propellants throughout the operation of the rocket engine.
We are aiming to run experimental tests with these components as well, but we still need your help! Please continue to share this campaign with others, as we are getting closer to the static fire test.
Thank you for your support!
