Reseña del editor:
Written to answer the question of how to design rockets, Space Propulsion Analysis and Design provides readers the ability to complete a basic system configuration, mass estimate, and an estimate of the system’s performance. Written by 16 engineers with decades of space design experience, this book offers advice, tested configurations, and historical precedents for rocket performance. The book covers the basics of rocket design, major technology types such as liquids, solids, hybrids, nuclear, and electric, plus a mission design example and discussion of future possibilities for space propulsion.
Written for practicing systems and propulsion engineers, managers, and engineering students, this book gives readers a practical handbook to the design and configuration of rocket systems.
This book addresses the question: How do we develop a reasonable preliminary design for rocket propulsion systems? The first four chapters look at the basics of rocket system design and the remaining chapters cover individual technologies. Process drives our approach and discussion. Our basic, step-by-step process defines how to design a propulsion system and our discussions address each of the steps in an organized manner. Eighteen space-industry engineers contributed to this effort!
