Aircraft Propulsion and Gas Turbine Engines Second Edition by Ahmed F. El-Sayed Book pdf download.
Preface of Aircraft Propulsion and Gas Turbine Engines Second Edition book: After accumulating a couple of thousand users (in academia and industry) from around the globe, this engine is due for an overhaul! Since an overhaul is a heavy repair/maintenance process, then, in this second edition of my engine book, a number of significant changes have been made to the scope, organization, and focus. In this edition, I have strived to cope with the technological and environmental challenges associated with thrust/power production. The scope of the book has been expanded to include rocket propulsion, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and biofuel. Therefore, three new chapters have been added. Two of them are on rocketry. The third is entitled “Selected Topics” and handles three hot topics: future trends in aero engine design, UAV, and biofuel. The book has 19 chapters organized in three parts. With this new material, it is now possible to teach two complete junior–senior-level courses—one on aircraft and rocket propulsion and one on aero engine design. Other major content changes include the addition of internal combustion engines and propeller design. Moreover, since a long-distance rocket incorporates an air breathing engine side by side with a rocket engine for sustained ﬂight, there is a thorough analysis and discussion in the relevant chapters of intermeshing a rocket engine with either a ramjet, turbojet, or turbofan engine. Also, undusted fan (UDF) or propfan engines have regained the interest they previously enjoyed in the 1970s after the oil embargo; this was sufficient motivation for adding a detailed case study. Many new solved examples and nearly 100 new end-of-chapter problems based on real air breathing engines and rocket engines have been developed for this edition.
Aircraft Propulsion and Gas Turbine Engines, Second Edition builds upon the success of the book’s first edition, with the addition of three major topic areas: Piston Engines with integrated propeller coverage; Pump Technologies; and Rocket Propulsion. The rocket propulsion section extends the text’s coverage so that both Aerospace and Aeronautical topics can be studied and compared. Numerous updates have been made to reflect the latest advances in turbine engines, fuels, and combustion. The text is now divided into three parts, the first two devoted to air breathing engines, and the third covering non-air breathing or rocket engines.
