This newly reissued debut book in the Rutgers University Press Classics Imprint is the story of the search for a rocket propellant which could be trusted to take man into space. This search was a hazardous enterprise carried out by rival labs who worked against the known laws of nature, with no guarantee of success or safety/5(). Rocket propellants have a remarkably wide range of design constraints, some of which I would never have thought of on my own. They have to be high-energy compounds that can be reliably lit, but that are safe to store (sometimes This is a curious book: one part /5. This book, a translation of the French title Technologie des Propergols Solides, offers otherwise unavailable information on the subject of solid propellants and their use in rocket propulsion. The fundamentals of rocket propulsion are developed in chapter one and detailed descriptions of concepts are covered in the following chapters. The book is a treatise on solid propellants in nine chapters, covering the history, chemistry, energetics, processing and characterization aspects of composite solid propellants, internal ballistics, advanced solid propellants, safety, quality and reliability and homogenous or double base propellants. The book also traces the evolution of solid propellant technology in ISRO for launch vehicles and sounding rockets/5(3).
Rocket Propellant Technologies is written for serious students of astronautics. This volume reviews briefly the history of rocketry and the fundamental principles connected with rocket propulsion. Types of propellants, the chemical reactions involved, and the techniques used in manufacturing are explained. Book on Rocket Propellants As of May , Volume 1, Oxidizers, is complete and currently undergoing a final review and re-drawing of graphic illustrations. Read more. This book, a translation of the French title Technologie des Propergols Solides, offers otherwise unavailable information on the subject of solid propellants and their use in rocket propulsion. I assume all risk and liability of RCS products once purchased. I understand that the manufacture of rocket motors and rocket propellant may be an inherently dangerous activity. I have or I will read Terry McCreary's book "Experimental Composite Propellant" prior to using RCS products and will follow the safety procedures prescribed therein.
ALAIN DAVENAS, in Solid Rocket Propulsion Technology, 1 Background. The recent and spectacular development of rocket propellants is in sharp contrast to the slow, even non-existent development of materials for propulsion purposes during previous centuries, when the single basic product, black powder, was not sufficient to propel objects by gas jets, in spite of numerous attempts. Asphalt Based Solid Rocket Propellants by Chuck Piper Equipment, Books, Other Products ASPHALT BASED THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE SOLID ROCKET PROPELLANTS Their Manufacture and Use in Military, Commercial, and Small-Scale Experimental Rocket Motor Applications PREFACE: Asphalt/Perchlorate composite propellants were an innovation of the early s. Design of Liquid Propellant Rocket Engines by Huzel and Huang Rocket Propulsion Elements by Sutton Ignition!: An informal history of liquid rocket propellants by John D Clark The first two are great books that go over most of the technical aspects. The rocket propellant is the chemical mixture burned to produce thrust in rockets and consists of a fuel and an oxidizer. Fuel is a substance that can be in a liquid or solid state, burns when combined with oxygen producing gases for propulsion. An oxidizer is an agent that releases oxygen in combination with a fuel.
