Understanding Aerospace Chemical Propulsion is concerned with aeronautical and space chemical propulsion. The book seeks to provide understanding of the propulsion systems through (a) illustrative description of the systems, (b) analysis of modeled systems, (c) examination of the performance of real systems in this light, and (d) provide a comparative assessment of aeronautical and space propulsion system elements wherever relevant. It has eleven chapters covering introduction, specifications, efficiencies, thermos- and gas dynamics, propulsion system analysis, aero-system elements, fuels and performance, rocket combustion process, solid and liquid propulsion systems and combustion instability.
