ChemicalTank.TankTemperature Property

Top 

Description

The temperature of the Tank. The Thruster.AveragePreInletTemp property indicates the weighted average temperature (based on mix ratio) for all Tanks attached to that Thruster with open valves. The AveragePreInletTemp is used in the calculation of Thrust and Isp along with the AveragePreInletRefTemp, ThrusterInletPressure, and Thruster coefficients.

 

If the TestTankConsistency property of a Thruster is set to 1, the temperatures of all Tanks attached to that Thruster cannot differ by more than the MaxTempDiff for that Thruster. If the ForceTankConsistency property of a Thruster includes temperature equalization, the temperature of each Tank attached to that Thruster will be equalized post-burn using a weighted average of all attached Tanks, based on their mix ratios.
