Mason Tudor Graduate Research Assistant Mason Tudor’s research focuses on liquid rocket engine testing strategies and structural margin design using finite element analysis and Monte Carlo simulations to determine material property variations in representative rocket engine geometries. This is because of the high number of structural failures seen on the test stand and an overall goal of trying to reduce the number of tests and ultimately the price tag on development (i.e., certification and reliability demonstration through testing). The goal of this research is to relate this structural inadequacy on the test stand to the testing strategy. Shreyas Raghu Doctoral Student Shreyas Raghu works on the development of an affordability platform for the RS-25 engine (formerly known as the Space Shuttle Main Engine). His research focus lies in employing modeling and simulation techniques to improve the reliability activities of the engine for its recertification and production restart for NASA's future launch manifests.
