This course presents aerospace propulsive devices with particular focus on air-breathing engine
1 Gain knowledge of different types of aero-engines (turbojets, turbofans, ramjets) and to understand the aerodynamic and thermodynamic characteristics of major engine components.
2 Develop the knowledge and skills to analytically and numerically solve problems related to aerospace propulsion systems.
3 Develop skills in working independently.
4 Develop skills in critical evaluation of scientific literature.
5 Develop skills in planning and presentation of scientific talks and reports.
Theory and practical activities (Tutorials devoted to discussion and problem solving referred to the aeroengine.)
