Launch vehicle design

Simplifying rocket science with simulation

Estimated Watching Time: 45 minutes


An image of the RE-201, a breakthrough launch vehicle technology providing safe, cost-efficient and sustainable access to Earth's Orbit.

The small satellite market will grow significantly due to the increased need for communications, earth observation, imaging and agricultural monitoring. As this was previously an underserved market segment, it draws the attention of innovative companies seeing an opportunity to develop more affordable, safer and greener launch systems. These companies share a common need to go through design-build-test iterations at an unparalleled pace.

Does your space launcher meet performance targets?

The ability to evaluate different architectures early in design with simulation and linking that directly with manufacturing is critical, as Reaction Dynamics will testify.

In this webinar on space launch system design, you will learn how to:

  • Use mechanical simulation as part of an additive manufacturing process
  • Estimate nozzle performance efficiently with CFD
  • Benefit from system simulation for trade-off studies

Space launch systems

Design. Build. Test. Repeat.

Reaction Dynamics has been pursuing innovative research into rocket propulsion for five years as a startup that will offer dedicated launches to orbit for small satellites. The company implemented Simcenter to develop an eco-friendly launch solution and reinvent hybrid rocket engines.

Watch this webinar to find out how Reaction Dynamics managed to mature designs faster and prepare them for manufacturing.
