DET-003
Ballistics, gun powder and solid propellants - 2021

Loading of solid propellants for missiles and rockets

OBJECTIVE :

This course will provide learners with both the theoretical and practical bases for designing, manufacturing, controlling, and using solid propellant loads for rockets or rocket engines for missiles and space launchers.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 5 days (33 hours) and includes:

  • 6 x 3-hours lectures
  • 1 visit to the propellant plant at Saint-Médard-en-Jalles (Gironde)
  • 1 demonstration of the sizing of propellant loads
  • 1 practical session at the CRB
  • Discussion on the selection of a propellant load for the tactical missile engine

GENERAL APPROACH :

The course is designed to provide all the learners with basic knowledge of solid propellants, their use as loads and their design.

It will also give them the opportunity to meet propulsion specialists who will address the pyrotechnic problems related to the implementation and operation of solid propellant engines.

PREREQUISITE :

Course level: Basic

This course is suitable for engineers and members of the armed forces as well as managers/supervisors with a good scientific background (ENSI level).
