RPA: Tool for Liquid Propellant Rocket Engine AnalysisC++ Implementation
Alexander Ponomarenkocontact@lpre.dehttp://software.lpre.deMay 2010
 Abstract 
RPA (Rocket Propulsion Analysis) is a tool for the performance prediction of the liquid-propellantrocket engines. RPA is written in C++ programming language and can be used on MS Windows™ andmany Linux and UNIX systems.This document presents the equations used for the combustion equilibrium and performancecalculations. Results obtained from implementing these equations will be compared with results fromequilibrium code CEA2.
