## <a name="Hybrid Meeting Minutes 10/19/03"></a> Hybrid Meeting Minutes 10/19/03

----

**In attendance:** Peter Bold, Brian O’Neel, Michael Pence, Duftan Sandoz, Jim Ward, Evan Waymire

**Topics Discussed:**

Meeting centered around getting back on track with development after a brief hiatus in which a lot of time was spent working on the LV2 airframe.

We discussed the critical path items that need to be done before we can static fire the gaseous hybrid. The main things that still need to be finished are:

1) Safety analysis <br /> 2) Nozzle design <br /> 3) Metering orifice design <br /> 4) Injector research and selection <br /> 5) Finalize plumbing layout <br />

We have decided that we would like to try to accomplish a test firing near, if not before, the New Year. In order to do this the above items need to be completed. For the most part the bulk of the work lies in research and coming up to speed in 'compressible flow' so we can finish some of the designs. The physical machining will not take long one we have a satisfactory design.

With all this in mind we divide up the workload.

The next hybrid meeting will be in 2 weeks.

**To Do List:** **Action Items:**

- **Peter Bold:**

1. Work on starting safety analysis

- **Brian O’Neel:**

1. Read up on compressible flow and investigate nozzle design

- **Duftan Sandoz:**

1. Read up on compressible flow and investigate metering orifices
2. Check on sources for crimping connectors to high pressure lines

- **Jim Ward:**

1. Bread board Flex-Tek data aquisition system

- **Evan Waymire:**

1. Read up on compressible flow and investigate metering orifices
2. Aquire possible back-up TIG welding resource.
