Abstract : The engine design and analysis task was continued with completion of the secondary engine performance analysis, effort toward selecting the main engine thrust chamber segment support structure design, and effort toward completion of the main and secondary engine turbopump layout drawings. The engine critical component demonstration testing task was primarily directed toward completion of the full main thrust chamber fabrication and assembly. The major fabrication effort was completed, and assembly is in process. The oxidizer pump bearing and seal testing was continued. The main tester was damaged due to the suspected presence of solid contaminant, and the test program was continued with the secondary tester. The final Phase I analysis and design of the propellant feed system was completed by both General Dynamics/Convair and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company. (Author)
