       ROCKET DESIGN ELEMENTS

Click for larger image

    This book (465 p.) has everything one needs to know about ballistic and free rockets science, design, construction, build,
 technology and test.


        ABSTRACT:
    The book contains four parts considering whole rocket development process - design, constructing and testing, including assembly
    line production.

    First part considers efficiency and efficiency criteria, target properties, firing errors, target hit and destruction probability.

    Second part includes rocket movement, it's dynamic characteristics with displayed and solved differential equations.

   - Rocket forces and moments with random values identifying and their mathematical interpretation.
   - Planar and space rocket movement and trajectory influented by environment, particularly by wind.
   - Rocket flight stability and guidance with random disturbances and fly control system for Ground-To- Ground rockets.

    Third part contains missile dispersion theory, particularly for rockets. Disturbing forces and dominant influences causing rocket dispersion, including their
    preventing or reducing processes, are shown and determined.
    All mentioned above provide rocket project requirements and constructive solutions.

    Part four encircles rocket construction problems, starting with material choice, further detailly construction development, important values optimization, solutions
    mutual dependencies, reproductivityall-phases quality control, production conditions, etc.
    Rocket air-brakes unfolding through launcher mechanism, thus reducing rocket dispersion are presented. Warheads are fully attended, including ones' different
    types and the newest solutions.
    All these processes are followed by different testing methods from the very beginning to the end of assembly line production, especially in anticipated extreme
    conditions of use.
    Testing optimization during development process and production maintaining level of quality criteria and costs reduction of testing optimization are presented, too.
    Separate chapter is given to rocket reliability and cost.
    Rocket development trends and their usage rentability compared to missiles, are given in the end.
    This book is intended for students and engineers engaged in rocket armament R&D.

        KEYWORDS:
Rocket, unguided rocket, missile, rocket design, rocket construction, rocket guidance, rocket control, rocket testing, rocket reliability, rocket cost, target destruction,
target hit probability, firing errors, rocket movement, rocket forces and moments, rocket flight stability, rocket dispersion, fin-stabilized rockets, gyro-stabilised
rockets, anti-armour rockets dispersion, wind influence on rocket flight.
