The Propulsion team consists of a manager and 5 members who are tasked with developing, manufacturing, and characterizing robust and efficient hybrid propulsion systems for use in sounding rockets. Emphasis will be placed on research into the mechanics of a hybrid engine and its subsystems in order to optimize engine characteristics (thrust, burn time, mass flow rates, regression, etc.) and accurately predict performance through computational models. Members must be familiar with all components of a hybrid propulsion system (oxidizer tank, plumbing assembly, injector plate, combustion chamber, nozzle) and understand how these parts interact with one another. A background in chemistry, thermodynamics, and high speed aerodynamics is necessary, and experience with MATLAB, SolidWorks, and CFD is preferred. Additionally, prior machining experience is beneficial. Individuals will be expected to contribute a significant amount of time to research, fabrication, and testing while learning new concepts and skills quickly regardless of prior exposure.
