Abstract : A method of making a rocket motor case with an integral nozzle in which the rocket motor has a large length to diameter ratio and is made by applying a linear wrap of fibers as a first layer on a mandrel and then by applying radial wraps over said linear wrap and also conforming the linear fibers to the shape of the nozzle after applying the linear fibers on said mandrel to provide a structure that has sufficient stiffness to accomplish the desired result of a large length to diameter rocket motor case.
