Abstract : The objective of the computer program for which the users guide is furnished is to develop an estimated cost of fabricating a nozzle for a solid-propellant rocket motor. The program provides for nozzle configurations that consist of any or all of a given number of components, and is intended to cover both metal and nonmetallic nozzles suitable for use on rocket motors up to 60 inches in diameter. The program can be expected to produce a cost estimate which is sufficiently accurate for the designer to make those material and fabrication cost comparisons needed to produce an optimum performance/cost ratio for a particular nozzle's mission.
