Altitude Simulation Vessel for Ariane-V engines
This project involved the design, computation, production and installation of a Simplified altitude Simulation (SAS) package intended for the VINCI engine tests on the PF52bench. The simulation is used for emulatinat ground level the flight conditions normally found at the altitude where the Ariane 5 launcher cryogenic engine is ignited.
This PF52 bench is located on the Snecma Rocket Engines division’s test site, at Vernon (France).
The SAS is one of the units to be supplied for incorporation into the modification of the PF52 engine test bench.
The caisson was installed on the VINCI test bench site.
