Synopsis:

The aim of the subject is to explain physical principles of complex process of transformation of chemical energy of fuel to useful mechanical energy within different types of aircraft turbine engines and their basic internal flow elements with respect to their performance characteristics and efficiency.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction to the powered flight, operational envelopes and standard atmosphere, aircraft performance, thrust and needed engine power

2. Aircraft gas turbine engine, thrust equation, propulsive efficiency, gas turbine engine components

3. Air breathing engines, gas turbine engines, jet engines, basic construction schemes of gas turbine and jet engines, ideal engines and their thermal cycles

4. Parametric cycle analysis of ideal engines of different construction schemes - (ramjet, turbojet, turbojet with afterburner, turbofan)

5. Parametric cycle analysis of ideal engines of different construction schemes - (turbofan with optimum bypass ratio, turbofan with optimum fan pressure ratio)

6. Parametric cycle analysis of ideal engines of different construction schemes - (mixed-flow turbofan with afterburning, turboprop engine, turbo-shaft engine with regeneration)

7. Component performance - inlet and diffuser, nozzle
