16.50 Aerospace Propulsion
Presents aerospace propulsive devices as systems, with functional requirements and engineering and environmental limitations. Requirements and limitations that constrain design choices. Both air-breathing and rocket engines covered, at a level which enables rational integration of the propulsive system into an overall vehicle design. Mission analysis, fundamental performance relations, and exemplary design solutions presented.
16.50 will be offered this semester (Spring 2017). It is instructed by S. Barrett.
Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 33-419.
