About the Authors
  • Fundamentals of Jet Propulsion with Applications is an introductory text in air-breathing jet propulsion including ramjets, turbojets, turbofans, and propjets. Aimed at upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, the book provides coverage of the basic operating principles, from cycle analysis through component design and system matching. A basic understanding of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics is assumed, although many principles are thoroughly reviewed. Numerous examples and nearly 300 homework problems based on modern engines make this book an ideal teaching tool, as well as a valuable reference for practicing engineers. A CD included with the book contains example files and software to support the text.

    • A variety of examples help the reader appreciate the methods and differing representative physical parameters of air-breathing jet propulsion
    • Designed for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students in aerospace and mechanical engineering
    • Example files and software to support the text are available online
