    Emerging Concepts in High Speed Air Breathing Propulsion

    Course Outline:

    • Introductory Lecture to provide the technical background on high speed propulsion such as (a) the governing aerothermodynamic equations, (b) propulsion performance measures, and (c) propulsion performance analysis.
    • Learn the cycles and performance for emerging high speed air breathing propulsion concepts
    • Learn the cycle and performance for the ATREX engine
    • Learn the cycle and performance for air-breathing rocket engines
    • Learn about pressure gain combustion processes and how they can fit into high speed air breathing propulsion cycles
    • Learn the cycle and performance for cycle modifications like the Turbo-Ramjet Mass Injection Pre-Combustion Cooling (MIPCC) and Oxy-Boost (oxygen injection into the combustion chamber)
    • Learn the benefits of each in their application to hypersonic cruise and launch vehicles
