Rocket Propulsion Elements
Sutton, 2nd and 3rd Editions
For more than fifty years, this seminal text has been regarded as the single most authoritative sourcebook on rocket propulsion technology. More comprehensive and coherently organized than any other book on the subject, Rocket Propulsion Elements guides readers evenhandedly through the complex factors that shape propulsion, with both theory and practical design considerations.
With a detailed table of contents breaking down each chapter into subsections-as well as an expanded index of key words - this book efficiently steers readers quickly to the information they need. Other highlights include:
* Separate chapters on liquid, solid, and hybrid propulsion systems.
* Comprehensive coverage of rocket propulsion technology, with applications to space flight, satellite flight, and guided and unguided missiles
* Problem-solving examples and exercises relevant to actual design situations
* Many illustrations, including photographs, tables, and graphs
For professional engineers in the aerospace and defense industries as well as undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical and aerospace engineering, this time-honored resource is indispensable for its scope of coverage and utility.
These are used copies of the book generally from aerospace companies or universities and are in good condition. Though the books are over 40 years old they provide an astounding amount of information that is of particularly good use to the experimentalist.
