Post Looking for some good rocket design books   Posted on: Sat Feb 17, 2007 9:45 pm
I'm looking for some good technical books on how to design size and and fabricate a rocket that can carry perhaps a small payload, say 10 kg.
I found a few at amazon.com.

A good book that I really like that's not quite just for rocket design; but it gives a lot of good historical performance and sizing data is "Space Vehicle Design" by Michael D Griffen and James R. French. It's part of the AIAA Education series, ISBN 0-930403-90-8. Sorry, I don't have a link... just grabbed it off of my desk.

It's a definite must read for people first getting into space vehicle design. It will give you introductory level information on all of the major disciplines, lessons learned, etc.

Good luck!

We actually have a real spacecraft designer for a NASA chief.

And he supports HLLVs.

He knows his stuff.

Sorry about the kick, but i'm looking for books on designing space structures (space stations, satelites, etc) and its requirements, etc, etc. Anybody has any got tips.

If anybody has any books about aerospaceengineering in PDF format, i'd like to know :wink: Thanks!
