This textbook is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students interested in learning the fundamental aspects of aircraft propulsion. The basic theory of the gas turbine engine based on the principle of thermodynamics and aerodynamics is covered extensively, as most of the recent commercial and military aircraft are being powered by the gas turbine engines. Emphasis is placed on precise and logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles, which are essential for a better understanding of aircraft propulsion. The text flows in a gradual manner to instill confidence in the minds of the reader. Attempts have been made to keep the derivation of fundamental equations and principles at an uncomplicated mathematical level. Several examples are provided in each chapter for the reader to assimilate and reinforce the ideas developed in this book. Adequate emphasis is laid on the problem solving techniques. The rudiments of the design, operation and behaviour of individual component of gas turbine engine are included. Typical values of design parameters, experimental data and examples of actual engines are also included in several places to help the reader appreciate the subject matter. The details of the practical aspects such as mechanical design, control systems and manufacturing procedures etc., have not been included, because these are not considered to be part of fundamental theory, which undergoes frequent changes.

Target Audience:

Undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students interested in learning the fundamental aspects of aircraft propulsion/aerospace engineering.
