MISSION SUMMARY

The STS-65mission wassuccessfully launched planned 189:16:43:00.013 .m.t. as at G (12:43 p.m.e.d.t,onJuly8, 1994). Thecountdownroceeded smooth p ina manner withnounplanned olds.Theascent hasewasnominal ndallSpaceShuttle h p a Elements performedatisfactorily. s Noorbital aneuvering m subsystem (OMS)-1 maneuver was required a result fthedirectinsertion as o trajectory flown. Firststageascentperformance wasas expected.SRBseparation, entry,deceleration, andwaterimpact ccurred anticipated. o as BothSRBsweresuccessfully recovered. Performance fthe SSMEs,ET,andmainpropulsion o system (MPS)wasnormal.A determination overall ehicle of v performance wasmadeusing vehicle accelerationnd a preflight propulsionredictionata. Fromthesedata,the average p d flight-derived engine specific impulse (Isp)determined fortheperiod between SRBseparation ndstartof a 3-g acceleration as452.1 seconds, w which isslightly lower thanexpected but satisfactory hencompared w withthepredicted valueof 452.57seconds.SSMEcutoff (MECO)occurred 189:16:51:30.31 .m.t.(510.63seconds at G MET)whenthevehicle reached planned the MECOtarget. The OMS-2 maneuver asperformed 189:17:22:55.2 .m.t.(00:39:55.2 w at G MET). The two-engine firing was 141.3seconds induration andprovided differential a velocity (AV)of221.8ft/sec. The resultant was162.9by 160.3nmi. orbit Atapproximately 189:17:23 G.m.t.(00:40:00 MET),following mainpropulsionystem s (MPS)vacuum inerting,he liquid t hydrogen (LH2) anifold m pressure increasedo t 17 psia. Thisincrease coincided iththeOMS-2maneuver.Onprevious w missions whenvacuum inerting wasperformed manually, thepressure increasedo t approximatelypsia. Thiswasthefirstflight theOI-23software 6 of thatautomatedhe t MPSvacuum inerting procedures. TheOI-23software wasverified haveperformed to as required, andall LH2system responses tothesoftware commands erenominal. w A supply waterdumpwasinitiatedt 192:07:27:20 .m.t.(02:14:44:20 a G MET). At 192:07:59:02 .m.t.(02:15:16:02 ET)(32 minutes G M later),the dump wasprematurely terminated because excessively of lowdump-nozzle temperatures. Dataanalysis concluded thatthesupply waterdumpnozzlehadaccumulated unknownmount f an a o icethatmayalsohaveobstructed thewastewaterdumpnozzle.Thesupply andwaste waterdumpnozzleheaters werecycled toeliminate theicefromthenozzlearea. After thesupply andwastewaterdumpnozzle temperatures indicated icewasnolonger present, successful a wastewaterdump wasinitiated 193:16:49 at G.m.t. (04:00:06 MET). The dumpwascompleted minutes 56 laterwithgoodnozzle temperatures andnosigns ice. Supply of waterdumps wereperformed using theflash evaporator system (FES)forthe remainder theflight. of

Postflightanalysisof the MPS dump/vacuuminert performance indicatedthat this first use of the new OI-23 software automated dump sequence resulted in a lower amount of residual hydrogen after the dump (estimate of 2 Ib, which is lowest in flight history). However, preflight predictions from the MPS Propellant Dump model has indicated that residuals after the dump should have been less than 1 Ibm (about 0.3 Ibm). Since the residuals were greater than the predicted value, the 5-minute coast time between dump and vacuum inert was insufficient to allow all of the solid hydrogen to sublimate to gas. This resulted in the hydrogen residual after the vacuum inerting that caused the observed manifold pressureincrease.

Discussion Cracks aretypically eenat thecenterline fcavity s o collapse; however, thiscrack wasunusualnthatit i occurred between holes. Thecracked section wasexcised andthepreliminary examination results indicatehatthecrack t was caused bystress corrosionftersplashdown, a withno indication anypre-existent of flaw. Thefinal geometry appears bea half-moon to shaped crack witha maximum depth approximately of 112inch. Thefracture surfacehadan intergranular structure indicating ydrogen-assisted h stress corrosion cracking (SCC). The probable crackinitiation location wasontheaft outerflangecorner andwas approximately 0.060-inch longby0.012-inch deep fromwhich itgrewinward approximately 0.25inch. Thecrack initiated during waterimpact amageand d grewduring towback dueto SCC. Allnecessary conditions SCCwerepresent,.e., residual for i tensile stress because waterimpact avity of c collapse loads, probable initiation location, damage protection to system (primer, aint, 5NA,Instafoam, p K etc.), corrosivenvironment e (saltwater)during towback, presence zincin primero helpaccelerate of t crack growth, andthesusceptibility the D6ACmaterialo of t SCC.
