Partial walk-around of an alcohol inlet.

Picture 2 of 3.

Six alcohol inlets ring the aft of the combustion chamber. High-pressure fuel from the turbopump enters the area between the two walls comprising the thrust chamber at these alcohol inlets. The fuel flows forward, providing regenerative cooling, to the burner cups at the forward end of the thrust chamber, where it is mixed with liquid oxygen and burned.
