Abstract [en]

The Vulcain 2 Nozzle Extension has been reinforced further to the failure of the maiden flight of Ariane 5 ECA. An intensive engineering and testing program was pursued by Volvo Aero Corporation (VAC), responsible for the Nozzle Extension, EADS-ST GmbH responsible for the Thrust Chamber and Snecma, responsible for the Vulcain 2 engine. This program was conducted under the leadership of CNES, by delegation of ESA. Thanks to the use of advanced computational methodologies and an integrated engineering team from Volvo Aero Corporation, EADS-ST GmbH and Snecma, the nozzle modifications defined at the early stage of the development fulfilled completely their requirements. Extreme ground tests have been defined to reproduce the worst loads expected in flight and have demonstrated the robustness of the Vulcain 2 Nozzle Extension.
