From the component design to the subsystem design to the engine systems design, engine development, and flight-vehicle application, this how-to text bridges the gap between basic physical and design principles and actual rocket-engine design as its done in industry. More than 470 illustrations and tables help to make this book a must-read for advanced students and engineers active in all phases of engine systems design, development, and application in industry and in government agencies.
