UF Rocket Team’s Propulsion Research program tasks teams with researching, designing, and building solid, liquid, and hybrid propellant rocket engines. Once built, the motors will undergo static motor tests to measure relevant data such as thrust, impulse, burn rate, etc. Through the program, the team hopes to compile a catalog of manufactured motors with statistics and information on how to create them for future use.

Software Verification Engine (SVE)

Software Verification Engine (SVE) is the first liquid engine developed by the University of Florida. SVE is a pressure fed engine with 140 Isp and produces 50 lbf at sea-level thrust. SVE will produced valuable data for the subsequent liquid engine development program.

  • Fuel: 95% Ethanol (C2H6O)
  • Oxidizer: 50% Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)
  • Isp Sea-Level: 140s
  • Chamber Pressure: 100 psi
  • Thrust: 50 lbf
  • Cycle: Pressure Feed
