hybrid rocket motor research development

Our club works alongside a graduate research lab (CET Lab, Combustion and Energy Transportation Lab) to create new innovations in rocket motor propulsion systems. Utilizing computational fluid dynamics and propulsion elements, we've managed to create a basic level hybrid demonstartion (video on left).

Our goal is to continue this research into paraffin wax to create a full size rocket motor. We will start with a level 1 rocket and build up after various simulations, testing and designs.
