This is a combustion test facility to simulate environmental conditions for engines on the ground with the aim of developing actual rocket engines and of verifying their performance.
The combustion test is performed in such a way that liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen are fed to an engine positioned in the low-pressure chamber and burned, and engine exhaust gas is continuously withdrawn by steam during combustion and then released from the muffler tower into the atmosphere.
Using this combustion test facility allows rocket engine performance to be more reliably ascertained, so that the facility helps increase the rocket reliability.
