Abstract:

The author first explains the performance of rocket engines using liquid fuel, and then the rocket engines using solid fuel, pointing out the shortcomings of either system. Then he introduces the type of rocket engine using a combination of liquid and solid fuels, making it possible to eliminate both shortcomings. In addition, this type of rocket engine also has the advantage of enjoying greater thrusting power by adopting the best fuels, reducing the possibility of mishaps by virtue of stronger structure, and increasing the safety in launching. The author also points out a number of problems involved in building this type of rocket engine. Finally, the author outlines the usage of this type of rocket engine, such as their use of artificial satellites and on cosmic vehicles. Three technical drawings are provided showing the structures of rocket engines using liquid, solid, and combined fuels. Author
