Liquid Rocket Metal Tanks and Tank Components

by Space Division (Rockwell Corporation), The Boeing Company, Martin Marietta, Bell Aerospace, Aerojet, Rocketdyne and NASA Lewis Research Center scientists and engineers


Here's a comprehensive technical reference resource for the liquid propellant rocket scientist, engineer, and technician.  The book reviews state-of-the-art designs for liquid propellant rocket tanks and tank components.  It provides both design criteria and recommended engineering practices for their design, fabrication, testing, and use. 

Among the many sections of discussion are tank configuration, materials, structural design, components, design analysis, fabrication, testing, and inspection.

Much of this data and information was classified as secret until the time of this report.   This fine handbook will provide solid information for everyone who designs, builds, tests, or uses serious liquid propellant rocket tanks.  It's the official NASA design guide, full of scientific data, rocketry information, and military missile lore, providing data on all types of liquid rocket tank systems. 

And it's the ideal text for "amateur" experimental rocket scientists.  Even though it's oriented toward "grand" rockets and spacecraft systems--like Saturn, and the Apollo Lunar lander--the information applies as well to "backyard" homebuilt liquid and monopropellant rocket tanks!  Heads up, all you serious "amateur" rocket scientists and engineers!

Prepared at the NASA Lewis Research Center by scientists and engineers from the Space Division (Rockwell Corporation), The Boeing Company, Martin Marietta, Bell Aerospace, Aerojet, Rocketdyne and NASA, this valuable book gives the practical information you need.  It's a book by the experts, for the experts!  The contents are the result of more than 40 years of investigations by the world's largest propulsion contractors.  Literally millions of dollars were spent obtaining this critical yet hard-to-find data.

This is the perhaps most complete and comprehensive book ever written about the theoretical and practical engineering design of liquid rocket tanks and their components.  It’s thick, heavy, and packed with accurate information for the professional (and “amateur”) rocket scientist, engineer, technician, and experimenter.

Plus you'll have 11 pages of technical references (149 different studies are listed), a 10-page (! ) glossary of arcane symbols and definitions used in valve design ... and MUCH more not mentioned here!

If you design, build, test, or fly serious liquid rockets or missiles of any size, you'll want this superb reference textbook.  It’s especially useful for “amateur” rocket builders--there's nothing else quite like it anywhere!

Very hard to find and now out-of-print, this new limited edition has been republished by the Rocket Science Institute.  It's printed with a high-resolution laser printer (not photocopied) on high-quality, bright-white, acid-free paper, and quality bound for years of reference use.  167 pages, large and easy-to-read 11" x 8-1/2" size.  ISBN 1-878628-29-1    $24.95
