Bell, Rocket, rockets

Note: this is the "larger" version, with "one page per page." As the original was notably smaller in size than the 8.5X11 format, the image quality is less than spectacular, so a "smaller" version has also been made available. However, at 8.5X11, you get to see the charts at a good size!

From the Bell Aerosystems Company, this November 1961 handbook provides a history of rocketry along with a great deal of information on rocket engine design in the form of equations, data and color charts. Includes: Principles of rocket propulsion; rocket equations; rocket propellants (monoprop, biprop, fuels and oxidizers); heat transfer; pumps; celestial mechanics (including ballistic trajectories and solar system data); physical properties (of air, the atmosphere, chemical elements, physical constants, refractory metals); and many charts.
