Theory of Aerospace Propulsion book cover

Theory of Aerospace Propulsion

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.

Audience
Aerospace or mechanical engineers working in gas turbines, turbomachinery, aircraft propulsion and rocket propulsion.  Undergraduate and graduate level students in aerospace or mechanical engineering studying aerospace propulsion or turbomachinery.
