Abstract : The report is concerned with gas-dynamic and thermodynamic problems of the theory of solid-propellant rocket engines. The author discusses in consecutive order the following: information of external ballistics, gas dynamics and thermodynamics; theory of the Laval nozzle; methods of calculation of equilibrium composition of products of fuel combustion in the chamber and nozzle; thermodynamic design of a rocket engine; calculation of parameters of internal ballistics with variable burning surface and with chemically reacting products of fuel combustion both for parameters of combustion products averaged in the chamber volume and for the plan of one-dimensional motion in the chamber and nozzle; methods of solving equations of internal ballistics for the igniter period; combined charge and packet of engines.
