Abstract

In order to investigate the water hammer problem of the filling pipeline during the rocket propellant filling process of the spaceflight launch site, the simulation calculation model and the real experimental system is established. It researches the water hammer characteristics of the filling pipeline, and analyses the law of pressure change when water hammer occurs. The improved schemes are proposed in this paper, and the simulation calculation and real experiment are carried through for the proposed schemes. It also carries through data analysis for the simulation and experimental results. The results show that the proposed scheme can effectively reduce the water hammer effect of the pipeline during the filling process, improve the rocket propellant filling accuracy and enhance the security and reliability of the system.
