Design and Analysis of a High Speed, High Pressure Peroxide/RP-1 Turbopump

The following report describes the design study for a turbopump, which feeds a closed-cycle 5,000 lbf engine that utilizes two high-pressure H2O2 catalyst beds as gas generators, and generates thrust through a H2O2 transpiration-cooled combustion chamber with an ablative nozzle extension.
