book (465 p.) has everything one needs to know about ballistic and free
rockets science, design, construction, build,
technology and test.
The book contains four parts considering whole
rocket development process - design, constructing and testing, including
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
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.
encircles rocket construction problems, starting with material choice,
further detailly construction development, important values
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.
