Rocket and Spacecraft Propulsion: Principles, Practice and New Developments by Martin J.L. Turner

Space exploration and research depends fundamentally on the use of rockets to launch probes and manned vehicles beyond the earths atmosphere. The first successful launch vehicles were developed in the 1960s from concepts dating back to the 1930s.This practical book written from the perspective of the space scientist deals with the latest applications and propulsion concepts at a level readable by space scientists and students without a formal engineering background.There are seven main topics: Principles of rocket propulsion and base vehicle dynamics; Thermal motors and the thermodynamics of thrust; Liquid propellant motors; Solid propellant motors; Launch vehicles, station keeping and attitude control, interplanetary transfer vehicles and dynamics; New developments: advanced thermal motors; electric propulsion and dynamics of electrically propelled vehicles; Future developments, fission and fusion powered propulsion.

Turner Rocket and Spacecraft Propulsion Third Edition has been revised and updated to provide a practical, hands-on work 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 today, and includes the very latest details of some of the advanced propulsion systems currently being developed. The book covers the fundamentals of the subject, from the basic principles of rocket propulsion and vehicle dynamics through the theory and practice of liquid and solid propellant motors, to new and future developments.

Martin J. The revised edition of this practical, hands-on book discusses the range of launch vehicles in use today throughout the world, and includes the very latest details of some of the advanced propulsion systems currently being developed. The author covers the fundamentals of the subject, from the basic principles of rocket propulsion and vehicle dynamics through the theory and practice of liquid and solid propellant motors, to new and future developments. The revised edition will stick to the same principle of providing a serious exposition of the principles and practice of rocket propulsion, but from the point of view of the user and enquirer who is not an engineering specialist. Most chapters will remain substantially the same as the first edition; they will be updated where necessary and errata corrected. The main revisions will be to the chapter on electric propulsion where there have been significant new developments both in engine types and in practical applications.
