About Course

This Aircraft Propulsion course deals with the gas power cycles for aircraft propulsion.

Therefore different types of aircraft engines, their parts, and their performance parameters are discussed. Then the cycle analysis and its different attachments for improvisation are also focused. Further, different parts of aircraft engines like compressors, turbines, combustors, and nozzles are discussed in detail.
INTENDED AUDIENCE: Undergraduate students of Aerospace and Mechanical Engg. (5th semester onwards) and postgraduate students specializing in the thermofluids/Fluid Mechanics/Automobiles; industry personnel associated with aerospace engineering; faculty members associated with Mechanical.
