    Historical accuracy in recounting the "fundamentally flawed" SRM joints of the Space Shuttle Challenger. Home About Us Jun 12th 2012 08:34am. STS-51-L Space Shuttle Challenger Explosion. A Fundament Flaw in SRM Joint Design. One of the most astute summaries of the cause of the Challenger explosion came from a lawyer, not an engineer. David Acheson, one of members of the Presidential Commission on the Space Shuttle Challenger Accident, said the following during the hearings. "A lot of material we have received, one reads that the designers, presumably both the corporate designers and the NASA supervisors, believe the joint was designed to compress and seal in the gas tight under combustion pressure. And it turns out very quickly in the joint history that it did the opposite. I just don't understand why the program then decided to go into a lot of little fixes to see if you could compensate for the. It is easier to blame a thing than to blame people. was the response of a Navy SEAL and son of one of the Apollo capsule design engineers when told about the joint rotation flaw in the Space Shuttle solid rocket motor (SRM). Indeed, it is easier to blame cold temperatures and a decision made at the last minute and under management pressure rather than to blame an engineering design flaw which was ignored by the engineering departments of Morton Thiokol and NASA s Marshall Space Flight Center. This flaw was ignored for years, in spite of numerous warnings both from the SRM s and from engineers who flagged the problem. Parker Hannifin is one of the world s leading authorities on O-Ring design. In the Parker O-Ring Handbook ORD 5700 paragraph 4.0 says It has been said that O-rings are the finest static seals ever developed. Perhaps the prime reason for this is because they are almost human proof. If the gland has been designed and machined properly. The disaster of Challenger mission STS-51-L was the result of human engineering error. The simple no spin truth is the O-ring gland was not properly designed. While this issue surfaced a number of times during the hearings of Presidential Commission on the Space Shuttle Challenger Accident , the Commission focused on cold temperatures and the last minute decision to launch during cold temperatures. Perhaps the consequences of highlighting the fundamental problem would not have been in what Chairman Rogers called the national interest. The theme of Allan McDonald s book Truth, Lies and O-Rings is that cold temperature was the major culprit in the Challenger explosion. However, McDonald admits repeatedly the joint design was flawed and this was the primary problem. The flaw is simply this: when pressurized, the joint opens up and the O-ring gland becomes grossly improperly configured. Cold O-rings may well aggravate this condition but a lot of things aggravate an incorrect O-ring gland configuration. Following are brief excerpts from Truth, Lies and O-Rings. Note that emphasis has been added. Also note that FWC is an acronym for Filament Wound Case. FWC were composite cylinders which reduced SRM weight. Hercules Aerospace was developing the FWC SRM design for NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and their u ...
