About the Book

For more than fifty years, this seminal text has been regarded as the single most authoritative sourcebook on rocket propulsion technology. More comprehensive and coherently organized than any other book on the subject, Rocket Propulsion Elements guides readers evenhandedly through the complex factors that shape propulsion, with both theory and practical design considerations.

With more than a third of the text and illustrations either completely new or extensively revised, this latest edition includes current information on engine structures, nozzle theory, gas properties, thrust chambers, launch vehicles, and more. With a detailed table of contents breaking down each chapter into subsections as well as an expanded index of key words the Seventh Edition efficiently steers readers quickly to the information they need. Other highlights include:

    Separate chapters on liquid. Solid, and hybrid propulsion systems and a new chapter on thrust chambers including the new aerospike nozzle

    Comprehensive coverage of rocket propulsion technology, with applications to space flight, satellite flight, and guided and unguided missiles

    Problem-solving examples and exercise relevant to actual design situations

    More than 340 illustrations, including photographs, tables, and graphs

    Coherent, up-to-date chapter on electrical propulsion balancing fundamentals with practical aspects and applications

For professional engineers in the aerospace and defense industries as well as undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical and aerospace engineering, this time-honored resource is indispensable for its scope of coverage and utility.
