Abstract : The book gives an account of thermodynamic principles of the calculation of solid-propellant rocket engines, engineering methods of the calculation of processes of heat exchange, principles of the theory of the combustion of solid propellants and the calculation of the indicating pressure curve in the combustion chamber of an engine. Basic information is given concerning solid rocket propellants and heat-proof coverings used in solid-propellant rocket engines. Thrust control in these rocket engines with respect to magnitude and direction and also the general method of ballistic design of solid-propellant rockets are discussed. The solution of simplified problems of interior ballistics of classical artillery and recoilless weapons is covered, and a solution is given for three expressions of the law of the combustion of the solid propellant.
