Abstract : A parametric study was performed of the Colloid Core Reactor Rocket Engine. This report describes the computer program written to calculate fuel vaporization loss rates in the Colloid Core Reactor. The theoretical development of the model and the organization of the program are comprehensively dicussed. Input instructions and a complete listing of the code are provided. A sample problem is used to illustrate and to define the output data. (Modified author abstract)
