Research and Markets: Theory of Propulsion - Aerospace Engineering

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/8cd0cb/theory_of_propulsi) has announced the addition of Elsevier Science and Technology's new report "Theory of Propulsion. Aerospace Engineering" to their offering.

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 and unconventional missions.

  • Early coverage of cycle analysis provides a systems perspective, and offers context for the chapters 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 of more 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 end of chapter exercises provide practice for analysis, preliminary design, and systems integration

Key Topics Covered:

  • Chapter 1 IDEALIZED FLOW MACHINES
  • Chapter 2 QUASI-ONE-DIMENSIONAL FLOW EQUATIONS
  • Chapter 3 COMBUSTION CHAMBERS FOR AIRBREATHING ENGINES
  • Chapter 4 EQUILIBRIUM CHEMISTRY
  • Chapter 5 NOZZLES
  • Chapter 6 INLETS
  • Chapter 7 TURBOMACHINERY
  • Chapter 8 CASCADES AND CENTRIFUGAL COMPRESSORS
  • Chapter 9 PROPELLERS
  • Chapter 10 BLADE ELEMENT THEORY FOR AXIAL FLOW COMPRESSORS
  • Chapter 11 TURBOJET COMPONENT MATCHING
  • Chapter 12 COMPRESSIBILITY EFFECTS IN TURBOMACHINES
  • Chapter 13 LIQUID ROCKETS
  • Chapter 14 SOLID PROPELLANT ROCKETS
  • Chapter 15 NUCLEAR ROCKETS
  • Chapter 16 PROPULSION FOR HIGH-SPEED FLIGHT
  • Chapter 17 ELECTRIC PROPULSION
  • Appendix A - Gas Dynamics Tables
  • Appendix B Themodynamic Properties ASTM-A-1
