It's quite simple, which is a good thing when you're talking about aircraft propulsion systems.
Readers of this book will be able to: utilize the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics to analyze aircraft engines, understand the common gas turbine aircraft propulsion systems and be able to determine the applicability of each, perform system studies of aircraft engine systems for specified flight conditions, perform preliminary aerothermal design of turbomachinery components, and conceive, analyze, and optimize competing preliminary designs for conventional and unconventional missions.
Successful testing of the three-stream engine architecture demonstrates Pratt & Whitney is well positioned to transition adaptive engine technology to meet future US Air Force requirements for combat aircraft propulsion.
AFRE seeks to develop and demonstrate a new aircraft propulsion system that could operate over the full range of speeds required from low-speed takeoff through hypersonic flight.
It could also result in reduction in aircraft propulsion installation weight through inlet/ nozzle/wing structure integration and elimination of aircraft control surfaces through differential and vectoring thrust for pitch, roll and yaw moments, says Singh.
There was much interest in internal-combustion gas turbines and some early attempts at development, but of course the ability to design efficient compressors and turbines, together with the lack of materials able to retain strength at high temperatures, made turbine engines that were suitable for aircraft propulsion impractical.
Federal programs should recognize that retaining national leadership in aircraft propulsion demands a program balanced between near-term needs, driven by market forces, and longer-term, transformational national goals.
