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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
