Experimental Rocket: Design and Research (Raketa)


Project no.: P-MIP-17-519

Project description:

In this project it is intended to create the theoretical and engineering construction basis for a scientific and defence purpose experimental rocket model as a system with a predefined internal and external ballistics parameters by use of a new type of ecological composite propellant. For this purpose theoretical and experimental studies and computer modeling techniques will be used. For this it is necessary to investigate the aerodynamic flow round patterns of the rocket‘s body and to determine the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of the resistance force and the engine thrust necessary to ensure the external ballistics parameters and to carry out the theoretical investigation and computer modelling of the rocket flight stability, path, speed and acceleration. On the basis of the performed studies and by taking into account the solid fuel energy properties, a rocket engine, ensuring the required thrust characteristics, will be developed and tested, as well as a scientific and defence purpose experimental rockets‘ model exterior ballistics and its reliability will be tested in polygonal ? experimental studies.
