This book presents the state-of-the-art criteria and recommended practices for rocket and spacecraft testing. It covers test conditions and specimen, data and instrumentation, test plans and reports, and similar topics.
It was originally written for designers and analysts to confirm the feasibility of a structural design approach, demonstrate the advantage of one design over another, identify failure modes, confirm analytical methods, and generate essential design data.
The text presents a comprehensive study of structural tests (structural capability, characteristics, active performance, and equipment environment and performance. It's the result of NASA and prime aerospace contractor's programs developed over more than 40 years.
The book is supported by related photos, illustrations, graphs, tables, and charts.
This is a valuable reference resource for the professional (and “amateur”) rocket scientist, engineer, technician, aircraft designer, and scientific experimenters.
There are two pages of technical references. Very hard to find and now out-of-print, this new limited edition has been republished by the Rocket Science Institute.
