EGN 4715 - Propulsion and Combustion Systems
Prerequisites: EGN 3343 - Engineering Thermodynamics
Co-requisite: EML 3015 - Fluid Mechanics
Course Description: Analysis of aircraft and missile propulsion systems; fundamentals of jet propulsion including air breathing and rocket engines. Presents aerospace propulsive devices as systems, with functional requirements and engineering and environmental limitations. Requirements and limitations that constrain design choices. Both air-breathing and rocket engines covered, at a level which enables rational integration of the propulsive system into an overall vehicle design.
Furthermore, the application of chemical, thermodynamic, and gas dynamic principles to the combustion of solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels will be studied in this course, which includes stoichiometry, thermochemistry, reaction mechanism, reaction velocity, and temperature levels.
