Teaching description

-Fluid dynamic and fluid machinery

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.)

The final exam consist of two part:

1)Written and oral examination covering all material covered in course

2)assignments and individual project

1) Types of Airbreathing Engines. Aircraft Propulsion Requirements.

2)Elements of Thermodynamics for Aero Propulsion Ideal & Real Engine Cycle Analysis. Parametric Cycle Analysis.

3) Flow dynamic in subsonic & supersonic Inlets. 

4) Turbomachiney: Axial Flow Compressors and Axial Flow Turbines.

5) Combustors.

6) Nozzles.

7) Airbreathing Engine System Considerations.

8) Piston Engine

9) Novel propulsive architecture
