Refillable gas cannisters

Refillable gas cannisters

I'm working on a hybrid rocketry project. Low budget, as far as these things go. I'm struggling to source a suitable cannister.

Could anyone recommend some suppliers (UK) for off the shelf cannisters? I have facilities for refilling.

The cannister size needs to be between 60 and 75mm outer diameter and 200 to 300mm long. Maximising this is better. Capable of withstanding 200 bar.

I'm trying to avoid going custom to save on cost.

Thanks, hope you're having a great weekend

Books regarding Aerospace Engineering?

Hello.

I'm a Mechanical Engineering student and I'd like to learn everything I can about Aerospace/Astronautical Engineering since I want to follow that path in the future. Can you guys give me some suggestions of books I should get regarding this matter?

Thanks in advance!

i came up with a mechanism that is so basic that i cant belief im the first to think of it…

i was playing around with a belt drive that i designed and had an epiphany to use it as an extruder for FDM 3D printers (the one with the plastic wire).

but i think its not only interesting for 3d printing, it is a very elegant solution to transmit power between an rotational axis and a string/rope/wire independent of the tension force in the string/rope/wire.

have you seen something like that before? i googled for hours, and i even went to the library and looked in old books about belt/pulley systems, but i cant find any examples that actually route the string/rope/wire inside the pulley system. there are a few designs that use the same principle (a belt to press a string/rope/wire against a pulley) but they all seem to be using the outside of the belt.

The Wikipedia article of the day for November 19, 2017 is Freak Out!.
Freak Out! (1966) is the debut studio album by the American rock band the Mothers of Invention. One of rock music’s first concept albums, it is a satirical expression of frontman Frank Zappa’s perception of American pop culture. It was also one of the earliest double albums in rock music. It features Zappa on vocals and guitar, along with lead vocalist and tambourine player Ray Collins, bass player and vocalist Roy Estrada, drummer-vocalist Jimmy Carl Black and guitar player Elliot Ingber, who later joined Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band under the name Winged Eel Fingerling. The musical content of Freak Out! ranges from rhythm and blues, doo-wop and standard blues-influenced rock to orchestral arrangements and avant-garde sound collages. The album was a success in Europe; in the United States, it was poorly received at first, but gradually gained a cult following. In 1999, the album was honored with the Grammy Hall of Fame Award, and in 2003, Rolling Stone ranked it among the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
