Different computational software’s were used for species analysis of various semi-cryogenic propellants. After analyzation the ideal and estimated values of various different parameters were calculated. Rocket Propulsion Analysis, a software developed by NASA was used for computing the ideal and estimated values as well as plotting of graphs with respect to different species. The adiabatic temperature of the species was also calculated by performing calculations on Microsoft Excel. In the end 1,1,1,2-tetraflouroethane, a semi-cryogenic propellant was used in order to draw comparison with other species such as Hydrogen, Methane, RPA-1. Graphical representation of the main variables such as pressure, temperature, density, specific heat etc. with respect to the different nozzle positions was also done.
