16.50 Aerospace Propulsion


Class Info

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.

This class has 16.003, 16.004, and 2.005 as prerequisites.

16.50 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by J. Sabnis and S. Barrett.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 37-212.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
