Principles of Jet Propulsion and Gas Turbines Book
Publisher: John & Sons | 1948 | ISBN B000O24HXU | PDF | 563 pages | 12.3 MB
This book is based on a lecture course entitled The Principles of Jet Propulsion given by the author in 1943 and 1944, under the sponsorship of the University of California ESMWT program, to graduate engineers working in the aircraft companies located in the Los Angeles area.
It was decided in preparing the original lecture notes to discuss basic principles only, and in order to conform with the wartime restrictions on security only unclassified material was included. Since the manuscript for this book was completed during the war years the same policy was observed in its preparation. This introduced certain difficulties, because it, was necessary to omit certain data and useful information. It is felt, however, that because the discussions in this book are confined to basic principles the observance of the interests of military security has not impaired the attainment of the main objectives: the presentation of requisite fundamental theory pertinent to an intelligent understanding of jet-propulsion engines and gas-turbine power plants. Although the book is written primarily for the student, and not for the specialist, it is hoped that it will also be useful to those actively engaged in the aforementioned fields.
In preparing the manuscript the author was guided by the experience obtained in teaching the ESMWT course discussed above. He found that the interest in the subject cross-sectioned various branches of engineering. For that reason certain material which may not be necessary for instructing aeronautical engineering students has been included. The instructor must use his own judgment in the selection and order of the subject matter to be taught. The author has drawn freely from the unclassified literature, and credit is due to those authors, professional societies, , and manufacturers who were kind enough to permit the use of their material. In this connection the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics deserves special mention. References to publications are given in the text, and those used in any chapter are collected at the end of that chapter.
