Abstract:

This report pertains to the performance and design studies of single stage and multi-stage liquid rockets and to liquid rockets with ramjet boost. Applicability of infrared equipment for early warning and homing is studied methods of increasing possible ratio of fuel weight to structural weight of dry fuel rocket are worked out. Homing with minimum fuel consumption and calculation of craft and target trajectories during homing stage have been completed. Ramjet and pulsejet performance calculations were finished. Apparatus for study of factors affecting speed of flame propagation has been constructed.
