Thermodynamic Calculations for Rocket Engines (Termodinamicheskiy Raschet Raketnykh)
[Technical Report, Technical Report]

Pagination or Media Count:
This book presents an approximate method for the calculation of thermodynamic parameters of the products of combustion in a rocket engine, as well as a method for the calculation of the specific thrust, without a determination of the composition of the products of combustion. The proposed method will make it possible to calculate these parameters with relatively little effort but with a sufficient degree of accuracy from the practical standpoint. This method is valid for the products of combustion of fuels composed of C, H, N, and O, with some reservations with regard to the method for the latter. Examples of the calculations are presented. In addition, there is a description of a method for the determination of the composition of the products of combustion from the indicated fuels.
