Abstract:

The book treats general questions of the theory and calculation of thermal rocket engines, describes processes of ZhRd and RDTT and considers their characteristics. The necessary information about liquid and solid fuels for RD is given. In the 2nd considerably reworked edition, contemporary methods of thermogas-dynamic design of processes in RD with high-temperature working media have been more fully explained. Results published in recent years of theoretical and experimental investigations to determine thermophysical features of combustion products and characteristics of chemically nonequilibrium processes combustion and expansion are reflected. Considerable attention is given to questions of the specific character of two-phase flows and to schemes of heat shielding.
