    This paper addresses problems of mathematical modeling of heat exchange processes in the pre-nozzle volume of a solid propellant rocket engine with a charge with starlike cross-section and a recessed hinged nozzle. Methods of mathematical modeling are used to solve the quasi-stationary spatial conjugate problem of heat exchange. An analysis is made of the influence of RANS turbulence models on the flow structure in the flow channels of the engine and on the computed heat flow distributions over the surface of the recessed nozzle. Methods of mathematical modeling are used to solve the quasi-stationary spatial conjugate problem of heat exchange. Results of validation of RANS turbulence models are presented using well-known experimental data. A comparison of numerical and experimental distributions of the heat-transfer coefficient over the inlet surface of the recessed nozzle for the engine with a cylindrical channel charge is made for a primary choice of turbulence models providing a qualitative agreement between calculated and experimental data. By analyzing the results of numerical modeling of the conjugate problem of heat exchange in the combustion chamber of the solid propellant engine with a starlike channel, it is shown that the SST $k - \omega$ turbulence model provides local heat-transfer coefficient distributions that are particularly close to the experimental data.
