Thrust Data for Water-only and Foam rockets

Well it has taken a while but we finally managed to get some good thrust data for a water-only water rocket and compare it to a water rocket using foam generated by our Jet Foaming technique.

The update includes the thrust data curves for 6 firings in total (3 water and 3 foam), as well as an analysis of the results. There is a video that shows how we measure the thrust.

The write up is a bit lengthy but we wanted to make sure that as much data was available for others if they wanted to process the data further or use it in their designs.

Feedback is always welcome.
