Abstract : An improved rocket nozzle system having a closure insulator located adjacent the combustion chamber of a rocket engine. The closure insulator has formed as an integral part thereof a plurality of nozzles. Each of the nozzles has incorporated therin a throat insert of pyrolized graphite cloth laminate and a consumable washer. The entire closure insulator assembly including nozzles is transfer molded as one piece into a steel housing. The housing is mounted on the combustion chamber thereby providing an effective nozzle system which is reliably operable under high temperature operation. (Author)
