Aircraft Propulsion Systems Technology and Design
is the third volumeoriginally proposed and coordinated by the late professor Gordon C. Oatesto form a sequence of three texts that represent a comprehensive expositionof the existing knowledge and the state of the art in aircraft propulsiontechnology today. In completing the editorial work for this text, I would liketo dedicate this last volume in the sequence to the memory of ProfessorOates who today is recognized as a pioneering giant in aircraft propulsiontheory and design whose influence on the propulsion community, both inindustry and academe, is sorely missed.The first volume in the sequence,
Aerothermodynamics of Gas Turbineand Rocket Propulsion,
addresses propulsion system cycle analysis and itsuse for establishing the design and off-design behavior of propulsion gasturbines. It includes pertinent elements of the aerodynamic and thermody-namic theory applicable to gas turbines as well as a review of the basicconcepts of rocket propulsion. The second volume,
Aerothermodynamicsof Aircraft Engine Components,
is primarily directed to appropriate aero-dynamic and thermodynamic phenomena associated with the componentsof propulsion systems. The major topics covered include turbine cooling,boundary-layer analysis in rotating machinery, engine noise, fuel combus-tion, and afterburners.The present text and third volume in the sequence,
Aircraft PropulsionSystems Technology and Design,
is aimed essentially at demonstrating howthe design and behavior of propulsion systems are influenced by the aircraftperformance requirements. It also includes an extensive review of how theoften conflicting requirements of the propulsion engines and aircraft aero-dynamic characteristics are reconciled to obtain an optimum match betweenthe propulsion and airframe systems. The key element in the text is theintroductory chapter that integrates technical materials in the sequence byoutlining the various steps involved in the selection, design, and develop-ment of an aircraft engine. This chapter provides an excellent exposition ofthe key physical concepts governing gas turbine propulsion systems. Theremaining six chapters cover combustion technology, engine/airplane per-formance matching, inlets and inlet/engine integration, variable conver-gent/divergent nozzle aerodynamics, engine instability, aeroelasticity, andunsteady aerodynamics.This text is intended to provide the most recent information on thedesign of aircraft propulsion systems that should be particularly useful inaircraft engine design work as well as in any advanced courses on aircraftpropulsion.
