MECH 544 Propulsion
3 semester hours
This course combines fundamental fluid mechanical and thermodynamic concepts to characterize the components, operation, and performance of internal combustion propulsion devices for aircraft and space vehicles. A practical approach to understanding these devices is also given, supplementing and enhancing the analytical application. The fundamentals of alternative, advanced air breathing and space propulsion concepts are also introduced.
Lecture, 3 hours.
