Rocket Science and FloMASTER

Korean Aerospace Research Institute Validates NARO Spacecraft Fueling Scenarios with FloMASTER.

Like most space launch vehicles, the Korean Aerospace Research Institutes (KARI), NARO spacecraft uses liquid oxygen (LOX) and Kerosene as propellants. The two liquids are piped to the rocket motors separately and when they are ignited, they react and produce an enormous amount of thrust that can propel these heavy crafts through the earth’s atmosphere.

This is not new technology and is relatively straight forward for rocket science. The real challenge of these systems, is fueling the vehicle. The volatility of the LOX and the need to fuel all three stages of the rocket at the same time makes optimizing and validating the fuel scenario vital.
