Abstract

Since February 2005 the new high altitude simulation test facility P4.1 for the VINCI® upper stage engine is operational in Lampoldshausen, the European test centre for rocket propulsion. VINCI® is an expander cycle upper stage engine of 180 kN thrust developed by SNECMA Moteurs. The paper deals with the operational conditions of the altitude simulation especially the behavior of the super sonic center body diffusor. High nozzle expansion ratios, different test configurations and the r-ignition conditions drive the challenges of the high altitude simulation P4.1.
