yeah, um the first one. that one. maybe that's what the barons for? any of your guys talk about the increase in engine output efficiencies when they used the NiB Nickel Boron coatings. ive heard crazy figures. like 5-8% pretty impressive.

that's hard info to come by. howed you get your sources to divulge this? cause I usually run into walls before that.

In my case it's a personal knowledge thing in that we 3D print
jet turbine blades and whole rocket components out of a number
of materials ranging from stainless steels, titanium, 8000 series aluminum,
ceramic and infuse and/or surface treat with NiB, Boro-Carbides and
other Ceramic-like materials.

My first 50,000 pound thrust rocket test is coming up
next month and my engine design hopefully will pass muster.
I didi the actual Maya renderings and then put it through
a Finite Element Analysis suite and finally a full
computational plasma-and-hydrodynamics simulation.
Gotta use that 1.2 PetaFlops of computer horsepower for something!

I suggested the NiB and Borocarbide coatings and now we'll test
in a controlled environment so we are gonna put a sapphire-lensed
ceramic-cased high-speed 10,000 fps camera in the combuston
chamber to see what happens.....

Hope that helps to indicate why I know something about that!

mmm.

There are not that many petaflop systems out there: 68 match 1.5 PF peak in the current list. Which one are you using? None are in Canada, but that's pretty meaningless.

Where are you doing your engine testing? 50k thrust is pretty nontrivial and most sites can't handle that. At least safely. What are you using for propellants?

I have never heard of anyone using Maya for engine design before. ACAD or solid works or STK, yes, but not Maya.

Learn something new every day, it seems.

R&D for decades now. Seems like it could have a use in some cases, but overall they'd like to get that performance without needing such a nasty fuel and how dirty it is (coats engines with crap), so the generation after Green Lady I assume will be using normal kerosene/JP1.

Unless it was just for pretty pretty presentations..CATIA or Solidworks would be used in design,espec with their plugins like Flowworks or Cosmosworks.ProEngineers gone all weird with Creo...

Can you give a rendering of the f-117 companion and the designation for it? Inbox me if you don't want to post the designation.

Have you ever asked yourself why green colour? What is colour actually? Hint: Forget about Boron, think E=h*v.

Nope. Green is just a side effect.

You guys are smart guys. I'm sure you guys can figure it out. The answers are scattered around various threads in the aviation forum.

As a graphics artist I use Maya as a
FUNCTION FOLLOWS FORM design study.
CATIA is what the "Real Engineers" use.

Propellants are/will be LOX and H2
within a double tank-within-a-tank design
and our 1.2 Petaflops system is a 400 processor
S9150 GPU and two hundred+ Xilinx FPGA farm
IN VANCOUVER. The computer system has not
been submitted to the T500.org supercomputer
list and it's mostly used for high-speed financial
trading and predictive human behaviour analysis
so as to determine WHEN people tend to trade securities.

It's not owned by us but due to PERSONAL
contacts we get to use it when they're not using it.
And at 1.2 PetaFLOPS we only need a few hours
to get what we need.

The rocket test engine at 50k lbs thrust
is only a design study to see if the engineers
final design is viable for scaleup.

Final engine will be MUCH MUCH BIGGER than
the Rocketdyne F-1 Engine (i.e. Saturn V rocket)

This is what is being built.

Canadian Ultra Heavy Lift Vehicle:
www.pdf-archive.com...

I'm just helping out with Flight Control Software
and some CAD/computer design work...REAL ENGINEERS
who used to work on REAL-WORLD SPACE VEHICLES are
doing the real heavy math/physics/cad/cam/fea lifting work:

hope this helps.

The early 1980's built F117 ECM/RECON/Fire Direction companion
that was LIKELY used in Gulf War #1 I personally think is CLOSE
the following design:

files.abovetopsecret.com...

I have NO IDEA about it's designation but I will give it one ;-) :-)

How about the FB-118b ? Will that work for ya?

My other renderings are of NEWER mid 1990's or later designs.

P.S. this is just a quick and dirty Coreldraw kids drawing.

Now IF I was at LMCO who probably would have
built the Blackstar spaceplane, I wouldn't have
even BOTHERED with Boranes!

I would have gone STRAIGHT to Liquid Methane
and added a DIFFERENT fuel sensitizer. Or if my
software in the 1990's was as good as it is NOW,
I just would have added a custom fully-computerized
Bosch-designed 80,000 PSI fuel vaporization and pulsed
ignition system to get the MOST out of my fuel plus
oxidiser/sensitizer load!

I have much smaller version of the system sitting
in one of our hot rods and it gets 400 HP out of
2.2 litres! For the LMCO guys may I suggest you
scale up this baby:

www.jegs.com...

to about 100,000 to 150,000 PSI --- You will have to make
the tips out of sapphire and the rest out of Titanium/Vanadium
but THIS BOSCH design should work JUST FINE !!!!!!!!

Why is normal flame colour yellowish orange and sometimes green?

How could we make it green?
