Solid Rocket Motors 1: Design

Charlie Garcia walks us through the design of solid rocket motors in his new YouTube tutorial series.

Video Caption: Hi Rocketeers! In this series of videos I want to teach you how to mix your own professional grade solid rocket motor. Far safer and much more efficient than your typical rocket-candy motors, we’ll explore the intricacies of grain geometries, simulation software, graphite nozzles, and aluminum cases, all while providing links to reputable suppliers. In this episode we’re looking over the design of the grain geometry of our motor, and exploring how to use the simulation software OpenMotor.
