About this Item

This book is intended for undergraduate and first year post graduate students in the disciplines of Mechanical and Aerospace engineering. Also, scientists and engineers working in the areas of aerospace propulsion and gas dynamics should find this book to be a valuable addition to their collection of books on the subject matter. The unique features of the book are: (1) chapters exclusively devoted to a discussion of fundamental concepts in propulsion, namely, gas dynamics, turbo machinery and combustion, and (2) separate chapters on the theoretical, practical design aspects of aircraft engines and thermodynamic aspects and analysis. This pedagogy allows the students to learn the concepts and ideas first and learn problem solving and analysis techniques later. Worked examples and exercise problems have been chosen to give the reader a feel for the application of the concepts learnt to practical situations in propulsion. In particular, the problems in Chapter 7 on thrust calculations are based exclusively on production aircraft engines, both military and commercial. These are comprehensive and are formulated to test the understanding of the subject matter. The last chapter on ramjet and scramjet is intended to give an informal introduction of these advanced concepts to enable those who are interested, to pursue higher studies in the propulsion area. Contents:- Preface, 1. Introduction 2. Basics of Compressible One Dimensional Flows 3. Basics of Turbomachinery 4. Basics of Combustion Thermodynamics 5. The Turbojet Engine 6. The Turbofan Engine 7. Thrust Calculations 8. Ramjet and Scramjet Engine, Suggested Reading, Index. Printed Pages: 212. Bookseller Inventory # 45122
