Abstract: Liquid propellant rocket engines utilize a wide range of materials; from steel alloys to thermoplastics and composites. This appendix presents a brief discussion of a range of material types and their general application in the design of liquid propellant rocket engines. Plain-Carbon/Low-Alloy SteelsPlain-carbon steels alloy iron and carbon. The lowcarbon grades (0.1-0.2%) have excellent ductility and toughness and are easily formed. The medium-carbon grades (0.3-0.5%) respond well to heat treatment, and thus…
