Based on a two-semester, senior-level, capstone design course, this text presents a realistic exposure to the aircraft engine design process.
The book is completely self-contained, including the equivalent of an instructors' manual, as each successive step of the design process is carried out in complete detail for the same aircraft system. The key steps of the design process are covered in 10 chapters that include aircraft constraint analysis, aircraft mission analysis, engine parametric (on-design) analysis, engine performance (off-design) analysis, engine sizing, burners, turbines, afterburners, and nozzles.
Includes Software! The ONX (parametric) and OFFX (performance) programs greatly extend the methods of Gordon Oates in facilitating the analysis of many airbreathing engine cycles. Furnished on one 3.5-inch DSDD floppy disk, these programs are supplied in executable code and come with a user's guide on the disk.
