Aerospace Propulsion Systems
Description:Aerospace Propulsion Systems is a unique book focusing on each type of propulsion systemcommonly used in aerospace vehicles today: rockets, piston aero engines, gas turbine engines,ramjets, and scramjets. Dr. Thomas A. Ward introduces each system in detail, imparting anunderstanding of basic engineering principles, describing key functionality mechanisms used in pastand modern designs, and provides guidelines for student design projects. With a balance of theory,fundamental performance analysis, and design, the book is specifically targeted to students orprofessionals who are new to the field and is arranged in an intuitive, systematic format to enhancelearning.- Covers all engine types, including piston aero engines- Design principles presented in historical order for progressive understanding- Focuses on major elements to avoid overwhelming or confusing readers- Presents example systems from the US, the UK, Germany, Russia, Europe, China, Japan, andIndia- Richly illustrated with detailed photographs- Cartoon panels present the subject in an interesting, easy-to-understand way- Contains carefully constructed problems (with a solution manual available to the educator)- Lecture slides and additional problem sets for instructor useAdvanced undergraduate students, graduate students and engineering professionals new to thearea of propulsion will find Aerospace Propulsion Systems a highly accessible guide to grasping thekey essentials. Field experts will also find that the book is a very useful resource for explainingpropulsion issues or technology to engineers, technicians, businessmen, or policy makers. Post-graduates involved in multi-disciplinary research or anybody interested in learning more aboutspacecraft, aircraft, or engineering would find this book to be a helpful reference.Contents:Preface.Acknowledgments.Outline of Aerospace Propulsion History.Nomenclature.1 Fundamentals.1.1 Fundamental Equations.1.1.1 Review of Terms.1.1.2 Equation of State for a Perfect Gas.1.1.3 Law of the Conservation of Mass.1.1.4 Law of the Conservation of Linear Momentum.1.1.5 Law of the Conservation of Energy.1.2 Isentropic Equations.1.2.1 Isentropic Relationship between Temperature and Pressure.1.2.2 Isentropic Relationships with Specific Volume.1.3 Polytropic Processes.1.4 Total (or Stagnation) Properties.1.5 Isentropic Principles in Engine Components.1.5.1 Ducts.1.5.2 Turbomachinery.1.5.3 Combustion Chambers (Combustors).
