Title (EN) SPACE-STORABLE, THRUST-VECTORABLE ROCKET MOTOR NOZZLE AND RELATED METHODS
(FR) TUYÈRE D'ORIENTATION DE MOTEUR-FUSÉE STOCKABLE DANS L'ESPACE ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) A thrust-vectoring rocket motor nozzle includes a forward assembly (102) having a forward shell (118) with a flange (104) configured for connection to a motor and a throat portion (126) opposite the flange. A ball joint sleeve (110) may be disposed proximate the throat portion, and an exit cone assembly (106) may include a ball joint socket (115) configured to mate with the ball joint sleeve to allow movement of the exit cone assembly about one or more axes relative to the forward assembly. A thermal barrier (154) may be disposed in a gap (156) between the forward assembly and the exit cone assembly. The forward assembly may include a throat insulator mechanically locked within the forward shell. Related methods include forming thrust-vectorable rocket motor nozzles. Rocket motors may include such nozzles.
(FR) Tuyère d'orientation de moteur-fusée comprenant un ensemble avant (102) ayant une coque avant (118) dotée d'une bride (104) conçue pour être reliée à un moteur et dotée d'une partie col (126) opposée à la bride. Un manchon de joint sphérique (110) peut être disposé à proximité de la partie col, et un ensemble divergent (106) peut comprendre une douille de joint sphérique (115) conçue pour s'accoupler avec le manchon de joint sphérique pour permettre le déplacement de l'ensemble divergent autour d'un ou de plusieurs axes par rapport à l'ensemble avant. Une barrière thermique (154) peut être disposée dans un espace (156) entre l'ensemble avant et l'ensemble divergent. L'ensemble avant peut comprendre un isolant de col mécaniquement bloqué dans la coque avant. Des procédés associés comprennent la formation de tuyères d'orientation de moteur-fusée. Des moteurs-fusées peuvent comprendre de telles tuyères.
