Design and Analysis of Rocket Motor Casing

Authors(4) :-J. Emeema, N. Akhil, N.Sainath Reddy, N. Sai Kiran Reddy

The work “DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF ROCKET MOTOR CASING” involves modelling of casing in ‘CATIA V5’ and performing finite element analysis in ‘ANSYS 14.5 ’by using two different materials such as MDN250,15CDV6 and by comparing their thickness, length and weight . Mainly case design is usually governed by the combination of motor and vehicle requirements. The shape of the case is usually determined from the grain configuration (or) from geometric vehicle constraints on length (or) diameter. The case configuration range from long and thin cylinders to spherical (or) near spherical geometries. The main purpose of the motor casing is to store the propellant. As soon as the propellant is ignited and rocket starts moving, a high amount of pressure and temperature will act on motor casing which is protected by incorporating an insulating material between propellant and casing.
