Airbreathing Propulsion covers the physics of combustion, fluid and thermo-dynamics, and structural mechanics of airbreathing engines, including piston, turboprop, turbojet, turbofan, and ramjet engines. End-of-chapter exercises allow the reader to practice the fundamental concepts behind airbreathing propulsion, and the included PAGIC computer code will help the reader to examine the relationships between the performance parameters of different engines. Large amounts of data have on many different piston, turbojet, and turboprop engines have been compiled for this book and are included as an appendix. This textbook is ideal for senior undergraduate and graduate students studying aeronautical engineering, aerospace engineering, and mechanical engineering.It is the worlda#39;s only jet engine with fan blades and a fan case made of camber- fiber composites. It has one fan, four LPC, ... of 56 kN is developed. It is earmarked for double-decker Airbus A380, with one fan, five LPC, nine HPC, a single annular combustor, two HPT, and six LPT. ... 2.1 Schematic sketch of a piston engine.
