Is there an open source bi-propelant liquid rocket engine that would have all the documentation, computations, test results and 3D design files (CAD) freely accessible?

Several papers have been published on liquid rocket engines. Below is a collection of some. Some links are from ResearchGate so you need an account there (free for academics/students).

With 3D files:

Papers without 3D models:

Projects without paper

Injectors

  • $\begingroup$ In the US, ITAR rules prohibit disclosure of certain rocket engine details to non-US persons. That effectively rules out any online availability. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Tristan Looks like ITAR does not care about information that is publicly avaiable - according to paragraph 120.11. You can see related question here. $\endgroup$
