The book, Air-breathing Propulsion, is class-tested and was used for teaching of under- and postgraduate students of mechanical and aerospace engineering about the present day aircraft piston, turbo-prop, turbo-jet and turbofan engines, as well as about ramjets. The method of teaching is a unified approach for physics of combustion, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, structural mechanics, heat and mass transfer and aerodynamic noise problems on axial and radial compressors and turbines, and their components, for clear understanding of the subject to the reader.

Produktbeschreibung
The book, Air-breathing Propulsion, is class-tested and was used for teaching of under- and postgraduate students of mechanical and aerospace engineering about the present day aircraft piston, turbo-prop, turbo-jet and turbofan engines, as well as about ramjets.
The method of teaching is a unified approach for physics of combustion, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, structural mechanics, heat and mass transfer and aerodynamic noise problems on axial and radial compressors and turbines, and their components, for clear understanding of the subject to the reader.
There are numerous illustrations, tables examples, and exercises for the benefit of the reader. Data table of a very large number of aircraft engines, collected from many books and internet are provided, and the historical data on engines would be of particular interest to the reader. The interactive computer code PAGIC provided, would be of interest to examine the relations between the performance parameters of an engine, for example, compression ratio and the turbine inlet temperature on one hand, and the thrust, work output, thermodynamic efficiency, specific fuel consumption, etc. on the other for the gas turbines. As a result the reader himself, using the code would be able to find out the information like turbine inlet temperature, if this has not been provided for a particular engine.

Autorenporträt
Tarit Bose is a retired professor of aerospace engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M), India. He retired in 1998 after 27 years of teaching "Thermodynamics", "Aircraft Propulsion", "CFD and Plasma Dynamics". During his time at IIT-M; Tarit supervised 16 masters level candidates and 10 doctoral candidates. Prof. Bose received his Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Munich, West Germany in 1960, and he received his Doctorate in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Stuttgart, West Germany in 1965. From June 1968 to May 1970, Prof. Bose worked for NASA-NRC as a resident research associate in the heat transfer group, in the propulsion research and advanced concepts section of Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena. Prior to JPL, Prof. Bose was a research fellow at the University of Minnesota heat transfer laboratory. In 1998 Prof. Bose joined Metacomp Technologies, Agoura Hills, CA as a research scientist. He has since retired and is pursuing personal projects.
