Description
GODDARD, ROBERT H. Manuscript and Drawings. An untitled single sheet with technical notes on both sides, and 3 drawings. Written in pencil on evenly browned paper. Approximately 5x8 inches.

One side, with the number "1" written in the upper right-hand corner, has a large drawing of a rocket engine valve and a smaller drawing of a diaphragm cover. Notes associated with the drawing read in part: "For main valves, Ox. P = supply line, . . . control valve. For tank valves, Ox. P = tank, B = supply line."
On the reverse side, with the number "3" written in the upper right-hand corner, there is an additional drawing of a tank valve. Notes included: "Tank Valves, short distance," and "diaphragm, if it gains enough travel - otherwise use a bellows - 35 lbs."
One of the development challenges of early liquid fueled rockets was the proper operation of control values for fuel and oxidizer. Often the valves would either fail during tests or during an actual flight with catastrophic results. Proper and continuous operation was required for Goddard's rockets to maintain flight until fuel depletion.
