Abstract: The research aims at modeling a rocket case to accomplish mission requirements. The various reasons that may cause case failures are improper design and analysis, lack of non-destructive tests during critical phases of fabrication, negligence in service conditions, improper material selection. Hence it’s very essential to model rocket with perfect designing and analysis. This journal entails the designing of rocket case using Catia V5, meshing with Hypermesh and Analysis with Ansys, where different materials like Aluminium and Epoxy-carbon are selected. The results focus on the deformation produced under same loading condition in two different materials and studying the results.
