Abstract:

"This completely revised and updated edition of Rocket and Spacecraft propulsion is a practical, hands-on book dealing with the newest applications and systems used in rocket and spacecraft propulsion. Written from the perspective of the user rather than the theorist, it discusses the range of launch vehicles in use throughout the world, and includes the very latest details of some of the advanced propulsion systems currently being developed. Drawing on his wide experience of both designing and building hardware and teaching the fundamentals of rocket propulsion to undergraduate students, the author has produced a work that is particularly accessible to those without a formal engineering background who are studying or working in the space industry."--Jacket.
