Abstract

Based on a broad evaluation of possible Semi-RLV configurations with a vertical take-off, vertical landing (VTVL) first stage, a two staged concept with a methane fueled first stage and hydrogen fueled second stage was selected for further investigation. A number of parameter studies were undertaken to identify optimal design trends specific to VTVL-stages. These parametric studies and their results are the core of this paper. Based on the results a robust initial design was developed and will in further steps be investigated on a subsystem level in order to promote the understanding of reuse-related technologies within Europe.
