ROCKET PROPULSION ELEMENTS

THE DEFINITIVE INTRODUCTION TO ROCKET PROPULSION THEORY AND APPLICATIONS

The recent upsurge in global government and private spending and in space flight events has resulted in many novel applications of rocket propulsion technology. Rocket Propulsion Elements remains the definitive guide to the field, providing a comprehensive introduction to essential concepts and applications. Led by industry veteran George P. Sutton and by Professor Oscar Biblarz, this book provides interdisciplinary coverage including thermodynamics, aerodynamics, flight performance, propellant chemistry and more.

This thoroughly revised ninth edition includes discussion and analysis of recent advances in the field, representing an authoritative reference for students and working engineers alike. In any engineering field, theory is only as useful as it is practical; this book emphasizes relevant real-world applications of fundamental concepts to link “thinking” and “doing”. This book will help readers:

  • Understand the physics of flight and the chemistry of propulsion
  • Analyze liquid, solid, gas, and hybrid propellants, and the engines they fuel
  • Consider high-temperature combustion, stability, and the principles of electric and chemical propulsion
  • Dissect the workings of systems in common use around the world today
  • Delve into the latest advances in materials, systems, propellants, and more

Broad in scope, rich in detail, and clear in explanation, this seminal work provides an unparalleled foundation in aerospace engineering topics. Learning through the lens of modern applications untangles complex topics and helps students fully grasp the intricacies on a more intuitive level. Rocket Propulsion Elements, Ninth Edition merges information and utility building a solid foundation for innovation.

I''ve only been working through the first few chapters. However, so far I like the pace of the chapters, with the breaks of example problems in between of the chapters. Some tips I''ve realized about the book I can share. Is try to do the example problems on your own first. It can be hard to not look at the answers, but they should be there guide you if you get stuck. That way when the end of chapters problems come in you are apply what you lean, and not having your hand held. Also, at the end of most chapters there are is a list variables. This chart is fundamental for the units since most of the formula assume that you know what the units are for different variables. But I will admit I do get lost in the equation and forget what relation I''m trying to balance. I guess that is my only complaint is that the units seem to take a back burner of the chapters. But again, you can make up for that by reviewing the units as you go through the formulas from the end of chapter variable table. Still working through the book, but so far I am enjoying the straight forwardness and fair progression of complex concepts.

Small annoyance is really a rant on the Imperial System of units. This book has example problems in both Metric and Imperial, although I find that it is important to know both, imperial is just such a poor metric system to work with

This is a review of the 9th edition: This book is the best technical book I have ever read. It’s a great and comprehensive intro to rocketry. It’s written in a clear style that explains in plain words the equations. It’s also a wealth of tips on what worked and what did not in the history of rocket development. The end of each chapter includes some practical case studies/ problems to check on your understanding (would have been even better with detailed answers in some instances).
I particularly loved the table of all the symbols used in the equations with units at the end of each chapter, it’s a great help to quickly understand the equations. I am not an engineer by training but thanks to this book I understand the basics of rocketry and a little more than that actually! Highly recommended.

As a former engineer looking to broaden my knowledge and horizons I found this book to be fascinating and insightful. There were a couple details surrounding some equations and references as others mentioned, but overall very solid product.

L’acquisto del libro è stato obbligatorio data la sua fama nella comunità scientifica in ambito spaziale. Da ingegnere spaziale mi sono concesso il lusso di possederne una copia. Detto questo, il libro presenta l’incollatura sul bordo inferiore di coppie di pagine contigue ad intervalli irregolari di 9-20 pagine. Date le quasi 800 pagine, è stato un fastidio abbastanza pronunciato separare le pagine due a due con un taglierino.
