Abstract : The book discusses fundamental problems in the theory and construction of liquid and solid rocket engines. Problems pertaining to the strength of liquid rocket engines and solid rocket engines are discussed; guidance and automatic control systems of rocket engines (RE) are analyzed, and types of process instability appearing in rocket engines are considered. Material published in the foreign and Soviet literature is used as a basis for information given on RE designs, fuels, cooling systems, turbopump units, gas generators, and applications of nuclear energy in rocket engines.
