Abstract : The pressure loss in the Centaur fuel system is a factor in the determination of the net positive suction head available to the turbopumps. The magnitude of the pressure loss is also required in order that the operation of the boost pump in the propellant system may be evaluated. This report describes the method of determining the pressure loss at various flow rates. (Author)
