Am Mittwoch gegen 16:20 Uhr ist ein Ballon-Experiment der TU München an einem Fallschirm im Raum Deggendorf gelandet. Wir haben dabei leider kurz vor der Landung den Kontakt verloren und sind jetzt auf der Suche nach unserem Experiment. Daher hier nun die wahrscheinlichsten Landezonen als "TUM-Wandertipp" fürs kommende sonnige Wochenende: http://move.lrt.mw.tum.de/balloonmap.png Wenn jemand etwas gesehen hat, wären wir über Hinweise sehr dankbar. Genießt das schöne Wetter und haltet draußen die Augen für uns offen!

Another cool WARR Project. Come and join the launch!

Cryosphere – Battleship Test Campaign

Cryosphere – Battleship Test Campaign

05.02.2018

After 4 years of development, WARR performed the first hotfire tests of Europe’s most powerful cryogenic hybrid rocket engine. With 3kg/s of liquid oxygen massflow, the “Battleship” generates 10kN thrust for up to 15 seconds burn time. The design point of 20bar chamber pressure was nearly hit and valuable performance data was collected for further improvements. The two-week campaign included verification coldflows, ignition checks and four hotfire tests with 5s, 10s (2x) and 15s burn time. Special thanks to all members of the WARR Ex-3 Project as well as the members of the M11 Test facility at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Lampoldshausen for the support and guidance. This project was funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) during the STERN Project.

With this weeks final review at DLR, where we presented our campaign results, we have officially finished the STERN project. We are looking forward to continuing our WARR Ex-3 development.

Ein weiteres erfolgreiches WARR-Jahr neigt sich dem Ende entgegen und das wurde von uns gestern gebührend gefeiert. Wir freuen uns schon auf neue Herausforderungen im Jahr 2018! All unseren Mitgliedern, Alumni, Freunden, Unterstützern und Sponsoren schöne Feiertage, ein frohes Fest und einen guten Rutsch! -- Another successful WARR year is drawing to a close and yesterday we celebrated accordingly. We are looking forward to new challenges in 2018! To all our members, alumni, friends, supporters and sponsors, we wish you Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Conclusion of the two-week long Test campaign in Lampoldshausen: • 4 Hotfires Tests • 10kN Thrust • Up to 15s burn time • Most powerful WARR engine ever We want to thank all members of the M11 Test facility at the DLR for the support and guidance. We gained valuable experience which we will apply in the development and launch of the WARR EX3.

Fourth Hotfire Test

Fourth Hotfire Test

14.12.2017

The beast has been unleashed! In today’s hot fire test, the CH-130 T “Battleship” engine operated for its nominal burn time of 15 seconds. A peak thrust of 10 kn and combustion chamber pressure of close to 20 bar were achieved. Due to minor issues with our oxidizer feed system, the LOX mass flow and engine performance dropped over the operational time slightly more than calculated. With the results and knowledge gained during this test campaign, we will upgrade and improve both the engine and the feed system.

We did it! We performed a 10s and 10kN Hotfire Test! In 100m distance 112 Decibel were measured. So, we build the most powerful and expensive leaf blower :) Tomorrow we going to test it again!

Second Hofire Test

Second Hofire Test

13.12.2017

Yesterday we executed the second Hoftire Test. After 2s we had to manually shut down the engine due to pressurization problems. After inspection and refurbishment of the motor we will fire the third grain today for 10s.

From today Team 2 is in Lampoldshausen and we get the engine ready. After the inspection and analysis of the test data from Friday, we had to do some minor improvements on our post combustion chamber insolation. We are aiming for a 10s Hotfire Test tomorrow.

First Hot fire Test!

First Hot fire Test!

09.12.2017

Hard work pays off! On Friday we successfully fired our 10kN engine for 5 seconds. The system performed as planned as we nearly hit the nominal operation point. We are now looking forward to testing for the full burn time of 15 seconds next week.

Today we prepared the system for our first hotfire test without any problems. However due to higher priority engine tests at the DLR facilities we were not able to conduct our own. We are therefore looking forward to test our 10kN hybrid engine for the first 5 seconds tomorrow #FingersCrossed

Update #3: Today we successfully performed the first coldflow test on site. This test was an actual hotfire sequence with external ignition testing in safe distance, but without fuel grain. The running pressure in the LOX tank corresponded to the calculated value which will be used in the coming hotfire.

Update #2 from Lampoldshausen The engine was pressurized successfully up to 40bar which is twice the nominal operational pressure. The test rig including the fluid and measurement infrastructure was completed as well. We are now ready for final system checks and coldflow (non-ignition) testing tomorrow!
