Artikel bewerten This book is a self-contained introduction to the design of modern civil and military jet engines through two-engine design projects for a large passenger and a new fighter aircraft. Numerous exercises, with solutions for the instructor, are included. Now in its third edition, Jet Propulsion offers a self-contained introduction to the aerodynamic and thermodynamic design of modern civil and military jet engine design. Through two-engine design projects for a large passenger and a new fighter aircraft, the text explains modern engine design. Individual sections cover aircraft requirements, aerodynamics, principles of gas turbines and jet engines, elementary compressible fluid mechanics, bypass ratio selection, scaling and dimensional analysis, turbine and compressor design and characteristics, design optimization, and off-design performance. The civil aircraft, which formed the core of Part I in the previous editions, has now been in service for several years as the Airbus A

A new fighter aircraft; Lift, drag and the effects of manoeuvring; Engines for combat aircraft; Design point for a combat aircraft; Combat engines off-design; Turbomachinery for combat aircraft; Part IV. A Return to the Civil Engine: A return to the civil transport engine; The book includes an excellent set of example questions for each section which are given a relevant contemporary context.
This is an excellent resource for anyone wishing to use this as a textbook as part of an undergraduate aerospace engineering programme. The authors have used their extensive industrial links to develop a textbook that is not only useful to undergraduate students on any programme covering aero gas turbine engines but would find a suitable place on the desk of professionals working in the industry.
Smith, The Aeronautical Journal "This book provides an excellent overview of the thermodynamic analysis and performance of turbojet based engines for the aircraft industry. He has been a Professor of Aerothermal Technology at the University of Cambridge and a visiting professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
He has previously held positions at the University of Leeds and Imperial College London, where he spent a number of years teaching engine design based on the second edition of Jet Propulsion.
