## Elements of Gas Turbine Propulsion, Volume 1This new text is designed to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of gas turbine engines and jet propulsion for aerospace or mechanical engineers. The book contains sufficient material for two sequential courses in propulsion (advanced fluid dynamics); an introductory course in jet propulsion; and a gas turbine engine components course. The text is divided into four parts: introduction to aircraft propulsion; basic concepts and one-dimensional gas dynamics analysis and performance of air breathing propulsion systems; and analysis and design of gas turbine engine components. |
