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. The paper describes design considerations of the valve assembly as well as characterization of the valve performance by experimental and numerical means.
