FUEL SUBSYSTEMS FOR LH/2 AIRCRAFT: R & D REQUIREMENTS

Design characteristics of the fuel subsystem for subsonic LH2 fueled commercial aircraft are discussed in terms of requirements and technology availability. Some of the differences between LH2 systems developed for space vehicles and those required for commercial aircraft are pointed out. Significant areas of technology requiring advancement and long lead time development testing are identified. The material presented in this paper reflects the results obtained from a Boeing study covering the development of a candidate fuel subsystem for a 3000 nautical mile range LH2 fueled commercial airplane.
