Abstract : Theoretical and design principles of liquid rocket engines are presented. Extensive coverage is given to processes taking place in the combustion chamber, calculations of mixing systems, the cooling and contour calculation of the nozzles, calculation and selection of optimal parameters, turbopump and fuel feed pressurization systems, generation of the working medium for the turbine and fuel feed pressurization system, design and integration of pneumohydraulic systems for liquid rocket engines, calculation methods and selection of a liquid rocket engine parameters with a closed generation circuit of the working medium for the turbine. Basic theoretical and design principles of processes taking place in different types of liquid rocket engines are presented. The operation of main subsystems and the calculation of their characteristics are discussed. (Author)
