    52:45 I thought the Challenger disaster was due to a failed internal seal in the SRB. Could max-q affect that at all?

    • Tech Ingredients
      Tech Ingredients  2 years ago +65

      It was. It may be that the extra stress at throttle up was the last straw and the SRB gave way, but it was not the throttled engines themselves that blew.

      Wind shear aloft was also a factor. An in situ plug of debris from exhaust particles and burnt seal material formed in the joint after ignition, which kept the joint from cracking wide open right away. Otherwise Challenger and her crew would have been destroyed right on the pad. When Challenger entered that unusually strong wind shear level (coincidentally near max-q), the flexing of the booster jarred the plug loose. Engine throttle up was the icing on the cake. Once that happened the exhaust gases were essentially a thermite blowtorch flame in a supersonic slipstream; it cut the aft booster attach point, and the aft dome of the external tank, causing liquid hydrogen to stream out. It wasn't long before the bottom of the tank opened up circumferentially like a zipper, and that was all she wrote. Aero forces then broke the whole stack up. All because of something as simple as rubber seals failing in cold temperatures. I hope that answers your question!

    • Ethan Smith
      Ethan Smith 2 years ago +4

      @Tech Ingredients saw a video on this. The seal is to keep pressure inside. The way the srbs are made came into play. They were made in sections and joined at the ends using a y shaped edge with an o ring inside to keep pressure on the bottom of the next section, along with some pins. When you watch a video of the challenger taking off you can see some wiggling at the bottom of the srbs. That combined with a cold o ring and the design allowed pressure to leak out. Specifically when it flexed, the o rings should've expanded to keep pressure on the two sections of the srb but didn't and a side of the y connector flexed to let pressure out. Which just happened to be hot and just tore the thing apart. Scott manley has a great video on it. Forgot the name though sorry about that.

    • RWBHere
      RWBHere 2 years ago +7

      @Ethan Smith There wast least one other booster which had one of the pair of O rings fail. The outer of the two O rings was all that stopped it from failing in the same way as Challenger. Like many disasters, it was not caused by just one failed component; it happened because of a concatenation of several circumstances, including cold weather, two failed O rings, failure at exactly the right point for hot gas to be ejected onto the fuel tank, wind shear at Max Q and sloppy manufacturing and safety testing techniques, compounded by managers not listening to the dire warnings which were given by engineers.
      In some ways, you can say that they were tragically unlucky on that occasion, but that doesn't give the whole picture. The Columbia disaster was another example of circumstances coming together to create a tragedy. All previous successful flights had had debris falling off the craft at launch, but the crews of those missions were lucky, because it had always failed to dislodge the vital heat shield tiles which completed the events and omissions which led up to the disaster.

      I did. Obviously he couldn't get into anything this dangerous, but he was extremely hands on and already pushed the boundaries of what the school would tolerate a bit.

      At mine, high school, in the 80's & early 90's they taught some of these ways chems can be used. No more, just that America is an evil country & it should be hated. Very anti-commie back then too. Now they're top professors at many universities & even sooner. Not too pleased or optimistic about were we'll end up if this socialism/communism popularity continues and isn't countered with how America is quite awesome . But these schools, constantly teaching our own children to hate America and only look at the bad things that happened. Not gonna be a recipe for survival

      I had such a teacher back in HS. I don't remember the reason, but in class he created a little NI₃ to spread out in the hallway. You know, that fun stuff made by soaking iodine crystals with household ammonia! DON'T try this at home if you know nothing about it.
      He disappeared from the school's faculty the following year, and a couple of years later I was working as a grocery bagger in the local market while he was a shelf stocker! The owner of the market sat on the school board that probably had something to do with deciding his career change!

    Outstanding,great presentation.Some small things to consider ,glycerin comes in quite many grades of dilution,80% product is glycerin ,90% as well,anhydrous glycerin is also glycerin.Ammonium nitrate commercial grade can be a mix of NH4NO3 and (NH4)2SO4,so it is important to know the quality of ingredients.Centering a rod/pipe in the the hull of the rocket engine is easier with some kind of of centering jig.The info about addition Fe2O3 and NH4ClO4 is quite "enlightening".

    Great technique and very thorough. I really appreciate the research you've put into the small additions that increase your yield. The only thing I would suggest as a change is for you to brush on your contact cement. You could even do it with a finger. What that does is substantially reduce your wait time until tacky But will also reduce the amount of globs that occur that might fall off into your flash powder.
    The other thing you might want to think about is having a flash powder plug That pushes down to the bottom of the burn channel. The only reason for this would be less assembly time.
    Perhaps shreading a cotton ball, mixing a small taste of flush powder and acetone and then impregnating the cotton with the flash powder paste. You could then either insert a pinch of impregnated cotton and to the rocket engine followed by a fuse or you could wrap a pinch of impregnated cotton around the end of the fuse then insert the fuse to the bottom while twisting the same direction as the cotton twist and then twist the fuse the opposite direction to relax the cotton bound cotton fibers - which in theory would allow the infused cotton and the fuse to hold. 🤷‍♂️
    The reason for the acetone is to make the paste but then allow a rapid evaporation leaving the flash powder behind.

    Video on making the engines was extremely interesting and informative. This one was more "gee whiz"; I was expecting time-force graphs, "after action" examination & discussion, future trials. The sparks being ejected are (probably) either molten fuel droplets or the nozzel burning out - either will reduce performance.

    This video brings back memories of my JROTC training in high school. We spent about a week on rocket engines. One thing I remember is you can change the shape of the central void in the grain to vary the burn rates. That was almost 40 years ago, so I don't recall any specific shapes in the text. I can visualize how a cross or star shape would burn differently than a round hole would though. Great video! 👍👍

      End burn without a hole is slow, round hole is fast, a star is fastest because of more surface area.

    Since I watched your video on creating graphene in a quartz tube with catbon black, copper wool plugs and a self-designed 'Doomsday' capacitor-based power supply, I have been utterly captivated by your extraordinary breadth and depth of scientific understanding. It is clear that you do these videos out of a passion for teaching, rather than out of any need for income, as it strikes me that your skills are commercially valuable in the extreme. I have been glued to your channel from the first viewing, cemented when I watched the one on resonating panel loudspeakers (as a lifelong audiophile and previous owner of similar designs, as well as electostatic panel speakers - Quad ESL). You make everything so easy to understand - more so than anyone or medium has before. Thank you so much and, please, keep going.

    The last 25% of fuel is a slower burning mix with a colorant added to create a visually pleasing launch that will start out slowly then accelerate once it leaves the pad. The first propellant injected is a slow slow burning smoke mixture that will leave a trail all the way to the ground to aid in locating.

    I use a drill for mixing epoxy which obviously creates loads of bubbles which are degassed by drawing the epoxy into a 60cc syringe but only a small amount, then capping the tip and pulling a vacuum with the rest of the plunger travel. I do this several times and it only takes a few seconds. Extremely fast way to get all the steps done with perfect mixing.

    One of my best friends in middle/high school had a dad that worked for Loctite. He legitimately had every single Loctite product in his garage that the company made for the previous 35 years. I never paid for a single adhesive or epoxy until I was in my 20s. But I think I could watch one of these videos specifically about the various epoxy types, mixes, ratings, additives, and some unique uses for them all. For some reason, the older I get, the more I appreciate random building materials. In fact, this makes me want to make a rifle out of nothing but epoxy.....

    Having voiced my concern and surprise about ammonium perchlorate, I have to admit that this guy or outrageously detailed, and well spoken. I appreciate this.

    Just wonderful. Put aside a moment the introductions to some of the aspects of engineering and science........the patience, planning, homework, attention to detail, subtlty. If these are all a student absorbs, they have learned some very essential traits I hope are learnable. I'm certain I'm overlooking some. Thank You! Keep up the excellent work.

    Great Video! Thanks for including the google doc with the formulas for quick and easy reference. I've wanted to try this since King of Random did it so long ago, but never got around to it. Keep the pyrotechnical content coming please :)

    Ive been brainstorming a rocket glider for months. I hadnt thought about using a slow burn motor before! Thanks!

    I absolutely love your analogy and way to "visualize " how a rocket works. You are an absolute Clip-Share legend!!!

    As a lifelong 'model' rocketry enthusiast,, I found this very informative. Like the shout out to the other channels to which I already subscribed. 😀

    Great stuff, yet again. I'm really enjoying this channel, and want to see subs go through the roof. Which sounds like a boating nightmare.

    It's not often a video of this length keeps my attention without skipping bits, but I watched every second of it. This is quality. Thank you.

    If you were my teacher in high school I would be working for NASA. If you were my coach I'd have been on a team that won state every year probably and the entire team would have turned pro. The most natural effective communicator I've listened to.

    Thank you for sharing your time and knowledge. I really loved the video and if I had you as a science teacher I would have done much better because you have an awesome manner when demonstrating or explaining everything. I hope you and all those hear or dear to you stay healthy and happy in the future.

    Always appreciate when someone way way smarter than you decides to take the time and care to teach, simply because they want to share the exciting things they know with you.

    The depth and breadth, the diversity of this man’s scientific interests and knowledge, and the precision and with which he investigates the topic at hand, and the time and monetary investments made, are truly staggering and shine ✨ like the sun.
    You, Sir, are the definition of “polymath”.
    BUT wait… it’s not only that, it’s the clarity and utterly pedantic, uncompromising precision with which he and his team (son?) film and document the subject matter, which should have won them awards WAY WAY outside the mere Clip-Share sphere. He transcends Clip-Share but I thank GOD he is here and showing us things.
    When I think of REAL scientists and engineers, the sole two channels imprinted on my mind are “Tech ingredients” and “Smarter every day”

    We all wished for teachers like You. Now I am old and not as interested like a kid but I still wish for more people like you with passion and great skill in telling what you mean to convey in understandable and interesting manner.

    I don’t watch a lot of videos longer than an hour (I mean WATCH, not listen to in the background while I’m showering) but I did this one. Made me a little late to the gym but I couldn’t stop. I used to make little rockets when I was a kid, would have been a lot safer if we had access to the information you presented. Thank you for the clear, interesting explanation of the construction of a solid rocket motor. A little beyond the heads of paper matches packed into an empty CO2 cylinder ignited by half a firecracker stuffed into opening. Shot out of a piece of pipe.

    It's always a great day when Tech Ingredients releases a video! My Curiosity runs wild about running thrust test on each of those engines on the Jet Engine thrust measuring device. Maybe even build a very large Engine and measuring the thrust. That would be an amazing video.

    I would like to restart my hobby once I get done moving. I would like to start at class 1 rockets and data collect and make the rockets smart. Recently I just came across your videos and they are very inspiring and I cant wait to start up again. So right now I am studying. Thank you for all you do!
