Title: Fundamentals of Propulsion
Description: blue, ANE Books. 2009. (ISBN: 8180522520). Paperback. Condition good, clean. Ane's Student Edition. ref ZKVQ 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. Used: Acceptable.
