Spiral-bound General Electric “Simulation Study” report for the “Development of a Realistic Analog Model of the J-2 Rocket Engine,” written and compiled by S. E. Pierce, dated May 1966, 154 pages, 8.5 x 11, issued as AE&S Publication 66-750422, Contract NAS 8-11209, and published in support of the Computation Laboratory Simulation Branch at the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center. The report contains four sections—Introduction; Analysis of J-2 Start Transients, Conducted for R-P&VE and Sperry Gyroscope Company; J-2 Steady-State Analysis; and Current J-2 Simulation—a total of 64 descriptive figures and a large assortment of fold-out diagrams and schematics. The abstract reads, in full: “A realistic analog model of the complete J-2 rocket engine is described. Included in the model are the gas generator, start tank, turbines, valves, LOX line, fuel system, and turbine bypass and discharge system. The complete mathematical model and the complete computer program are presented in the report. The working computer model is available to qualified users on short notice. Of special interest is a series of verbatim memoranda detailing what one customer learned from one application of the model.” In very good to fine condition, with some damage to the spiral binding.
