MOTORFEST is a one day event of Rocket Motor Testing to provide characterization of propellants and confirmation of Flight Motor designs. It is a Tripoli Sanctioned Event open to any and all Tripoli Members holding a Level 2 Certification or higher. Participants must be pre-registered and present their Tripoli Membership card at site sign-in. The Tripoli Research Safety Code will be in affect with proper distances in compliance.
Registered and qualifying participants will have their propellants characterized with documentation, or have their Flight Motor design confirmed. Flight Motors will only have Thrust readings unless modified to accept our Pressure Transducer, while Test Case Motors will have both Thrust and Pressure readings recorded.
Propellant Characterization is limited to a 54mm configuration approximately that of a J Class motor. Thrust and chamber pressure will be recorded for characterization. Any class motor up to and including a K Class can be presented as a flight motor and fired for design confirmation with only a thrust curve.
Testing will begin at 9am and end at 5pm, or when there are no more motors to be fired.
TCLOGGER and ProPep 3 Presentations will be at 7pm in the Meeting Room of the Host Hotel in Hartville.
