GET INSTANT INSIGHT INTO ANY AEROSPACE ISSUE!
In the past, aerospace engineers and students have had to access a wide array of trade publications and books for comprehensive coverage of their highly specialized industry. That’s because with The Standard Handbook for Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineers, those practitioners now have a resource that delivers a combination of reference, data, and handy information—all within the pages of a single, easy-to-use volume!
Containing contributions from more than 50 aerospace specialists—and edited by an internationally renowned aeronautical engineering expert and educator—this handbook frames the technological applications in a perspective that specifically addresses aircraft and engineering science. As a result, you get insightful, practical guidance into the gamut of aerospace engineering, including:
* Instrumentation and control
* Aeronautical and astronautical propulsion
* Aerospace structures
* Aerodynamics, flight mechanics, control, and stability
* Avionics and astrionics
* Aircraft design
* Earth’s environment and space
* And much, much more!
Plus, The Standard Handbook for Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineers is richly illustrated with hundreds upon hundreds of informative diagrams, charts, and graphs. From basic engineering science and mathematics to astrodynamics, this book is the one resource that all starting and mature aerospace engineers need to take their work to new heights.
Aircraft Propulsion, Second Edition follows the successful first edition textbook with comprehensive treatment of the subjects in airbreathing propulsion, from the basic principles to more advanced treatments in engine components and system integration.
This new edition has been extensively updated to include a number of new and important topics. A chapter is now included on General Aviation and Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Propulsion Systems that includes a discussion on electric and hybrid propulsion. Propeller theory is added to the presentation of turboprop engines. A new section in cycle analysis treats Ultra-High Bypass (UHB) and Geared Turbofan engines. New material on drop-in biofuels and design for sustainability is added to refl ect the FAA’s 2025 Vision.
In addition, the design guidelines in aircraft engine components are expanded to make the book user friendly for engine designers. Extensive review material and derivations are included to help the reader navigate through the subject with ease.
Aircraft Propulsion, Second Edition is a must-have textbook for graduate and undergraduate students, and is also an excellent source of information for researchers and practitioners in the aerospace and power industry.
