Motor Design Class Expanded to Four Days April 30, 2004 Web posted at: 12:42 PM EDT
(ROL Newswire) -- CP Technologies has expanded their 3 day class to 4 days for the summer months of June and August. The class costs $195 and includes the "How To Make Amateur Rockets" 2nd Edition bookset, all motor/propellant materials, lunches and a video of each student testing their rocket motor. A $30 discount is given to students who already own the 2nd Edition bookset. Students do not have to be US citizens and do not have to be members of any rocketry organization to enroll in the class.
As students learn how to design a composite solid rocket motor, the instructor assigns each student a maximum peak chamber pressure and pressure-time curve goal. The students design a rocket motor to meet that goal. They mix and cast the propellant as well as make the motor parts. The motors are static fired on the last day of the class at Wickman Spacecraft & Propulsion Company facilities.
People interested in the class should sign up as soon as possible as class size is restricted to seven students. More information on the class can be found at
