Abstract [en]

The Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV) is a spacecraft designed to carry men to the Moon and beyond. Developing such a spacecraft requires accurate numerical models. This work presents the development of such a model for the propulsion system of MPCV, with the software EcosimPro. The EcosimPro model of a spacecraft that is similar to MPCV is studied. Its results are compared with available flight data and its accuracy is assessed. Modifications are performed on this model in order to create the MPCV propulsion system model. The MPCV model is then used for performing functional propulsion analysis.
