    Work experience





    July 2012 – December 2012

    Occupation or position held

    Six-months stage experience in the frame of the Master in Space transportation System

    Main activities and responsibilities

    The objective of the activity is to model the liquid propulsion system of the fourth stage of  VEGA, (pressurization system, liquid and gaseous tanks, hydraulic lines, valves, pressure regulator, engine, etc.) in order to predict performance and line losses of the system.

    Modelling of components of such bi-propellants system is made by means of the EcosimPro (ESPSS library).
