Overview

Readers of this book will be able to: utilize the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics to analyze aircraft engines, understand the common gas turbine aircraft propulsion systems and be able to determine the applicability of each, perform system studies of aircraft engine systems for specified flight conditions, perform preliminary aerothermal design of turbomachinery components, and conceive, analyze, and optimize competing preliminary designs for conventional andunconventional missions.

  • Early coverage of cycle analysis providesa systemsperspective, and offers context for thechapters on turbomachinery and components
  • Broader coverage than found in most other books - including coverage of propellers, nuclear rockets, and space propulsion - allows analysis and design ofmore types of propulsion systems
  • In depth, quantitative treatments of the components of jet propulsion engines provides the tools for evaluation and component matching for optimal system performance
  • Worked examples and endof chapter exercises providepractice for analysis, preliminary design, and systems integration
