Abstract:

Basic structural elements of liquid-fuel rocket engines are 1 combustion chamber, consisting of head, combustion chamber itself, and nozzle. In combustion chamber occurs burning of fuel and conversion of heat to kinetic energy of stream of gases, as a result of which jet thrust is created. In chamber complicated thermodynamic processes take place, and there are colossal heat flows 2 fuelfeed system, consisting of fuel tanks, device for forced supply of components of fuel to chamber, lines, and fittings 3 ignition system, intended to ignite fuel for starting. Engines using spontaneously inflammable fuel have no ignition system.
