This article serves as a summary of the Sutton Program in the sense that all the principles the readers have learned across the educational series can be applied to an actual model rocket launch, using GU Rocketry’s Saltire-1 as a reference.
This article analyses the different methods of safe rocket recovery.
This article will introduce each of the components required for a small-scale rocket flight computer and explain the fundamental principles behind their operation.
This article will introduce various principles of aerodynamics that must be considered for rocket flight, showing how different types of drag are generated and some of the engineering techniques used to circumvent them.
This article will be looking at different types of rocket propulsion, the fundamentals behind how thrust is created and a brief look at some modern-day propulsion systems.
This article will explore the rocket equation and show why it is one of the most important equations in modern rocketry.
This article will be looking at Sir Isaac Newton and his 3 fundamental laws of motion that govern rocket dynamics.
This article accompanies the first video in the Sutton Program- our educational series made possible by RS Components Grass Roots, aiming to explore key rocketry concepts and principles.
A brief overview of the student-led rocket development programme at the University of Glasgow, GU Rocketry.
