Public Release Year: 2008
Reference Number: MSFC-SO-170
Category: Transportation
Origin: J-2X rocket nozzle testing

System-response models developed by LMS International NV, a Belgium-based company with over 30 offices worldwide including Troy, Michigan, were used to calculate side-wall loads on J-2X nozzles at Marshall Space Flight Center. The J-2X will power the Ares launch vehicle-NASA's next-generation spacecraft. LMS engineers gained knowledge to be used for engineering applications in a wide range of other industries. By providing onsite support for tests, the LMS technical support and development staff seize opportunities like the work with NASA to expand their knowledge of tests and dynamics in real-world applications.
