book about amateur rocketry


I used to have a PDF of a particular book that I am quite sure I got from this forum (or someone present), only last year it seems. It is a book about starting your own amateur rocket club and details the process and responsibilities of designing and building an amateur rocket, as well as many details and tables of fuel burn rates and composition. It was written about 50 years ago I think.

It is not the book in the library called Ignition! , which is the only PDF about amateur rockets that I have been able to find. I also went through my post history and PMs which turned up nothing. I know I didn't imagine this book, and I hoped it might sound familiar to someone more familiar with energetics. I was just starting to get serious about it. My personal server drive died and I did not have it backed up recently enough.

Edit: incredible! So many books, that sure will keep me busy. Thank you both. It was indeed the same book.

Probably Brinley's "Rocket Manual for Amateurs", which is available at C.J.'s link above.

^^^^ this. That book is amazing, just don't expect to replicate much of what's in it.




Nuclear physics is neat. It's a shame it's so regulated...

Now that I think about it, that's probably a good thing. Still annoying though.

Really great book, thanks for the recommendation. I try to read, in addition to scientific literature, which helps me write my dissertation, and fiction, which I need in order to rest from the difficult scientific language. I wanted to share with you the page https://writingbros.com/essay-examples/1984/ where you will find some interesting essays about Orwell's famous 1984 book and the meanings of which we don’t think about when we read it.
