Abstract : The bases of the structural mechanics of rockets are stated in the form of a complex of problems associated with an analysis of the working capacity of the forces of elements in rocket structures. The necessary knowledge from the theories of elasticity and plasticity, the theory of a casing, as well as the bases of dynamic and temperature calculations of rocket structures and rocket engines, are presented. Special attention is given to the analysis of active loading and to the selection of actual elements of structures (tanks, compartments, nose cone sections, engines) of the most undesirably calculated cases. Methods of constructing by dynamic temperature calculations, and calculations of strength are illustrated by numerous examples. (A THOR)
