Google is your friend

just search Rocket Tutorial Houdini

Here is a simple setup to emulate that. Three circles are inside the 3 tubes. The circles are emitters for the Billowy Smoke preset. The smoke collides with the tubes and the ground.

I always wondered why rocket engine tubes did not melt. What are they made of?

As far as I know in case of space shuttle there is a very dense pipe system inside them, filled with their own fuel which keeps them cool.
