Original Abstract

Part of a collaborative European effort to advance throttleable hybrid rocket technology, Bradford Engineering is developing a cavitating flow control valve. In order to improve performance of the valve Brno University of Technology has performed extensive numerical simulation campaign resulting in new valve design. The paper describes design considerations of the cavitating valve as well as characterization of the valve performance by experimental and numerical means. Furthermore, numerical parametric study is performed together with experimental evaluation of the optimized design.
