Abstract : The book gives the principles of the theory of liquid-propellant rocket engines, compares them with other types of heat engines, and discusses their possible fields of application. Special reference is made to the working process in the combustion chamber and to its characteristics, as well as to the theory of chambers of liquid-propellant rocket engines with complex cycles. The factual material and figures were taken from unclassified USSR and foreign literature. The author presents systems of coefficients to evaluate the internal losses in the chamber of the liquid-propellant rocket engine and of coefficients for evaluating such engines as thrust engines.
