The optimal design of launch vehicles based on liquid rocket engines is critically dependent on ascent trajectories and thrust throttling. Recently many authors have incorporated trajectory optimization at conceptual design level but still have not gauged the potential of using thrust throttling at conceptual design phase. In this study we propose not only(More)
A new approach is proposed incorporating heuristic optimization algorithm with a switch to a local search algorithm for the multidisciplinary design of solid launch vehicle at conceptual level. Heuristic optimization algorithms such as Genetic Algorithm often may locate near optimum solutions at the expense of large function evaluations. Local search(More)
